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.

Read Pride and Prejudice, disappointed
I read this in the hopes of reading a book greater than pride and prejudice, I was sorely disappointed. If I had not read pride and prejudice, and this would have been my first Jane Austen book I would have readily given it 4 stars.
