Instead of trying to copy Jane Austen's style, or taking Austen characters and moving their stories forward into mysteries and so forth, Trollope has followed the story-line and re-written Sense and Sensibility from a modern perspective. The girls text, they listen to cds, the mother is a bit of an artist with an artistic temperament, etc. It works quite well. I enjoyed the book, and I finished it, which is more than I can say for most of the others who've borrowed from Austen for their own literary ends!
