Description

Once so much to each other

Now nothing

Ann Elliot has only one regret: that she listened to her family and broke off her engagement to Captain Wentworth. He was poor, but they were in love--and she didn't realize that love was enough.

But Anne has a new chance: Captain Wentworth has returned from the Royal Navy. With everything stacked against her, can she overcome their heartbreak and persuade him to love her again?

Beautifully presented for a modern teen audience, Jane Austen's masterpiece is one of the most enduring stories about the resilience of love.
