About

Anne Elliot was 19 when she fell in love with Frederick Wentworth, a young lieutenant in the Royal Navy. But he was a commoner without a fortune, and Anne was persuaded out of marrying him. Eight years have passed and now she’s almost an old maid, living the sad life of an unloved child with her father, a vain, self-satisfied baronet, and with an equally selfish older sister. Her father's irresponsible lifestyle has brought the family to the verge of a financial breakdown. When Anne and Frederick meet again, he has the full right to consider her as a person too easily influenced, and be angry with her. In his service during the Napoleonic wars, he earned epaulettes, prestige, and fortune. How have Anne's feelings changed during this time? How she has changed? How will she cope with her pain?

The very best of Jane Austen’s style: skilfully portrayed characters, emotions and relationships, and a biting, even scathing satire on the superficial social life of the fashionable city of Bath.
