Eight years ago Anne Elliot bowed to pressure from her family and made the decision not to marry the man she loved, Captain Wentworth. Now circumstances have conspired to bring him back into her social circle and Anne finds her old feelings for him reignited.

In this, her final novel, Jane Austen tells the story of a love that endures the tests of time and society with humour, insight and tenderness.
