When financial struggles begin to affect the Elliot family, they decide to move to Bath. Anne decides to visit before the move, and runs into many old friends. Most surprisingly she is reunited with Fredrick Wentworth, a past fiance who under advice from her father and friend Lady Russell never married. Wentworth's lack of wealth and rank in the community were their main concerns and therefore eight years later Anne is still unmarried with little romantic prospects. However, through her journey and move Anne may find that what she has been looking for was right in front of her the whole time., Audiobooks., Austen's last novel is the crowning achievement of her matchless career. Her heroine, Anne Elliot, a woman of integrity, breeding and great depth of emotion, stands in stark contrast to the brutality and hypocrisy of Regency England.

Sir Walter Elliot has raised his three daughters with his own sense of haughty pride. Elizabeth, at twenty-eight, has found no one good enough to marry, while Mary has, with some condescension, married the son of the local squire. The youngest, Anne, was persuaded to throw off her fianc,̌ Frederick Wentworth, eight years ago due to his lowly station in life. When Wentworth returns from the Napoleonic Wars as a captain of wealth and rank, Anne must confront her remorse and her unrequited love for him as he courts another woman. This is a story of second chances, humility, and the perseverance of love., Title from container., Title from title screen (viewed April 27, 2011)., UKMGBengrdaUKMGBOCLCOOCLCFFOLLTOCLMHDYDXCPJPL, Unabridged., Unrequited love, VIAC, Vintage classics (London, England), Vintage classics., Young women, Z0VIA, Z2209Recorded Books, [Prince Frederick, Md.] :[Distributed by] OneClick Digital,[2011], [United States] :Blackstone Audio :2006., [United States] :Dreamscape Media, LLC :2016., analog, audios, cafhaf01-25-11mi-, computerc, data file, digital, e-uk-en, hoopla digital.,,, online resourcecr, othersz, qafea06-08-17mn-, qafea06-29-16mn-, qafeb02-04-16mn-, spoken wordspw, text, texttxt, unmediated, unmediatedn, volume, volumenc, xv, 301 pages ;18 cm., xxxvii, 260 pages ;21 cm., ℗1984.
