Sense and sensibility by Jane Austen( Book )
54 editions published between 1970 and 2008 in English and held by 1,535 libraries worldwide
When Mr. Dashwood dies, he must leave the bulk of his estate to the son by his first marriage, which leaves his second wife and three daughters (Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret) in straitened circumstances. They are taken in by a kindly cousin, but their lack of fortune affects the marriageability of both practical Elinor and romantic Marianne. When Elinor forms an attachment for the wealthy Edward Ferrars, his family disapproves and separates them. And though Mrs. Jennings tries to match the worthy (and rich) Colonel Brandon to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery Willoughby more to her taste. Both relationships are sorely tried. But this is a romance, and through the hardships and heartbreak, true love and a happy ending will find their way for both the sister who is all sense and the one who is all sensibility. - Publisher

Emma by Jane Austen( Book )
63 editions published between 1971 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,077 libraries worldwide
Emma (1816) is Jane Austen's most characteristic work. Convinced that she understands the world, Emma rules over her invalid father and the small social circle of Highbury with well-meaning tyranny. But she is highly fallible where love is concerned, and her failings there cause many misunderstandings - as well as giving the reader much enjoyment as order is restored. In her new introduction to this edition Terry Castle examines the pleasure given by Emma's reassuringly stable world and by its comedy, and examines the relationships, imagery, and continuing power of Austen's perhaps greatest novel

Annals of the parish, or, The chronicle of Dalmailing during the ministry of the Rev. Micah Balwhidder, written by himself by John Galt( Book )
25 editions published between 1911 and 1986 in English and held by 540 libraries worldwide
The book is narrated by the Reverend Micah Balwhidder, a Presbyterian minister in the Ayrshire town of Dalmailing, and covers the years 1760 to 1810, the period of Robert Burns and the Industrial Revolution, when the economic and moral shape of Scottish life was changing in ways both explicit and invisible. The novel charts all this: the work of smugglers at Troon, new births in the parish, old deaths, the efforts of the press-gangs, the rise of the local economy, the business of {u2018}cadgers by day and excisemen by night{u2019}, the opening of a new dance school at Irville, {u2018}run by Mr Macskipnish{u2019}, visits to Glasgow and Edinburgh, the day of the country fair, described with a rare vernacular beauty. It{u2019}s a precursor to Dickens in terms of detail and to Flaubert in terms of style.
