Can true love survive after a heartbreaking breakup? Who should you trust in matters of the heart? Eight years ago, Anne Elliott succumbed to pressure from her family and refused to marry the man she loved, Captain Wentworth. Now, thanks to a series of coincidences, the Captain is back in her social circle and her love for him is rekindled. But he treats her as if nothing has happened between them and seems interested in her younger friend, Louisa. With humour, sensitivity and tenderness, Jane Austen tells us a love story that must overcome the obstacles that society and the passage of time place in her way.
