Anne Elliot, a warm hearted young woman of 19, accepted a marriage proposal from Frederick Wentworth. A clever and ambitious young man, he had no background and both Anne’s father and her sister did not approve of her choice. Lady Russell, her mentor and surrogate mother figure persuades her to break the engagement. Eight years later, still unmarried, they meet again when he has risen through the ranks of the army and is wealthy as a result of the Napoleonic Wars. Although he is looking to be married, he is clear that he will take anyone other than Anne.
