A woman of no importance, she manoeuvres in her restricted circumstances as her long-time love Captain Wentworth did in the wars. Even though she is nearly thirty, well past the sell-by bloom of youth, Austen makes her win out for herself and for others like herself, in a regenerated society.

A very enjoyable read
I really enjoyed the story. I would thoroughly recommend it. I really like Jane Austen's
An excellent story however I must put it out there that I have read other Jane Austin books in paper back and I can not be sure that this copy is one of her originals. The language is completely different to that of the way she wrote Mansfield Park and Sence and Sensibility, which leads me to believe this version has been edited for the purpose of the 20th century.
I didn't know where this book was going as it had curious characters and many naval references. It improved a couple of chapters in and was very enjoyable to read. classic.
