On the surface, it does seem as though it was a happy ending – Elinor marries the man she has always loved from the very beginning of the book, the quiet and awkward Edward Ferrars; whilst Marianne, having been abandoned by her romantic but selfish first love John Willoughby for a more economically-sound alternative, marries loyal and steadfast Colonel Branson, whom at their first meeting she was convinced had “nothing
