LoveReading View on The Three Weissmanns of Westport

This is a sparkling, and stinging, contemporary adaptation of Sense and Sensibility. Two sisters, Miranda, an impulsive but successful literary agent, and Annie, a pragmatic library director, quite unexpectedly find themselves in middle age leaving New York for Connecticut to be the dutiful daughters to their recently divorced elderly mother.  As the sisters mingle with the suburban aristocracy, love starts to blossom for both of them, and they find themselves struggling with the dueling demands of reason and romance.

The Three Weissmanns of Westport Synopsis

When Joseph Weissmann divorced his wife, he was seventy eight years old and she was seventy-five...He said the words 'Irreconcilable differences,' and saw real confusion in his wife's eyes. 'Irreconcilable differences?' she said. 'Of course there are irreconcilable differences. What on earth does that have to do with divorce?' So begins The Three Weissmanns of Westport. Dumped by her husband of nearly fifty years and then exiled from their elegant New York apartment by his mistress, Betty is forced to move to a small, run-down Westport, Connecticut, beach cottage. Joining her are her daughters.
