Published for the first time in flipback - the new, portable, stylish format that's taken Europe by storm.

'She had been forced into prudence in her youth, she learned romance as she grew older'

Anne Elliot has all but given up on love. Eight years ago, she was persuaded by her ambitious family to break off her engagement to a penniless naval officer. But when Captain Wentworth returns from the war, Anne's old feelings are rekindled. He is now a wealthy man: can he forgive her? Told with wit and tenderness, Jane Austen's last novel is a moving story of love lost and found.

Published for the first time in flipback classics - so now you can always carry an Austen in your pocket.

Anne wins back Wentworth and wins over the reader; we may, like him, end up thinking Anne's character 'perfection itself.'" -from the Introduction by Judith Terry
