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 the letter from Wentworth to Anne in the end.
I love all of Austen's books, but this is my favorite. I love the quiet suspense! Amazing!
Gotta love it!
I mean, really how could you not? It's free!
