Enough said.) But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government, which—after unexpectedly detaining Felipe at an American border crossing—gave the couple a choice: they could either get married, or Felipe would never be […]

Answer:  I listened to the audiobook version of Sense and Sensibility read by her and it was possibly the best audiobook […]
