In 1806, Captain Frederick Wentworth and Miss Anne Elliot fell in
love, but since neither of them had any money, Anne’s friend Lady
Russell persuaded Anne not to marry the Captain. Eight years later,
Anne and Frederick meet again. By this time Frederick has made a
fortune in the Navy, but he is still angry with Anne for rejecting
him. This – the last of Jane Austen’s novels – is also the most
delicate and moving love story she ever wrote.
