Publisher's Summary

Austen's last novel, published posthumously. A timeless masterpiece, rich in everything: keen observation, characterizations, wonderful prose and a meaty plot and subplot(s)... in short, everything that we expect from and love about the great author! Anne Elliot and Frederick Wentworth meet and fall in love; but Anne's entourage, especially mentor Lady Russell persuade her not to act on her feelings, as the deem the young naval officer not suitable.

Eight years later Anne still a spinster meets Frederick again, now a Captain, intent on marrying Anne's neighbour Louisa Musgrove. Will the true love - still intact - between Anne and Frederick make itself known and correct everything in this mess?
