Eight years ago, Anne Elliot was persuaded that her family’s honour was more important than
her own happiness. She has suffered ever since. Now the man she turned away has returned.
Can Captain Wentworth forgive Anne, or will he be charmed instead by the beautiful Louisa?
Will Anne be persuaded to marry her cousin, or will she find the strength to follow her heart?
The extravagance of Anne’s foolish father, the greedy plotting of false friends, and a near-fatal
accident bring danger into Anne’s safe world. Their hearts assailed by resentment, regrets and
rivals, can Anne and Captain Wentworth now reach across the void that separates them to love
each other again?
