Jane Austen

Not many people are interested in Anne. She is the quiet second daughter of Sir Walter Elliot and lives in Somersetshire with him and her sister, Elizabeth. She has only one good friend. Lady Russell.

Years ago, it was different. Then, Frederick Wentworth loved her, and she loved him. But Frederick went into the navy and went away...

When his sister and her husband move to Somersetshire, Frederick visits them, and stays, and Anne must meet him. Now, he is different: he is an important man, the captain of a ship. Will he remember her? Does he love her? Or must Anne forget him - again?
