Anne Elliot is the overlooked middle daughter of Sir Walter Elliott, a vain man who has managed to spend beyond the family fortune. This causes the family to move to a more affordable, yet still socially acceptable residence in Bath, England. Seven years prior Anne had fallen in love with and been engaged to Frederick Wentworth, a young, poor seaman. Anne is unhappily persuaded by her family and friends to break-off this engagement, as Frederick is seen as an unacceptable match. Fast forward these seven years and Frederick, still nursing a broken heart, has returned to the area a decorated and wealthy captain. Frederick’s pride and Anne’s sadness, at choosing duty over true love, keep them occupied with other people and activities for several months. Frederick appears to be courting Louisa and Anne is being pursued by Capt. Benwick and cousin William Elliot. In the end, true love finds a way to bring Anne and Wentworth back together.

Anne Elliot, heroine of Austen's last novel, did something we can all relate to: Long ago, she let the love of her life get away. In this case, she had allowed herself to be persuaded by a trusted family friend that the young man she loved wasn't an adequate match, social stationwise, and that Anne could do better. The novel opens some seven years after Anne sent her beau packing, and she's still alone. But then the guy she never stopped loving comes back from the sea. As always, Austen's storytelling is so confident, you can't help but allow yourself to be taken on the enjoyable journey.
