Anne Elliot has grieved for seven years over the loss of her first and only love, Captain Frederick Wentworth. When their paths finally cross again, Anne finds herself slighted and all traces of their former intimacy gone. As the pair continue to share the same social circle, dramatic events in Lyme Regis, and later in Bath, conspire to unravel the knots of deceit and misunderstanding in this beguiling and gently comic story of love and fidelity.

I love anything by Jane Austen, and I think this is one of her best works. It's a sweet love story, and I enjoyed listening to the narrator tell this shorter version of it. It's a good abridgement with bits and pieces of classical music thrown in to help things along, and the story flowed just fine. I love, love, love it! Definitely a must listen for all Jane Austen fans.
Superb narration of a well-edited classic. I recommend many books narrated by Juliette Stevenson.
"Yet another Classic"
Having read the book many times I never cease to enjoy this story. I love all the books written by Jane Austin and hope to build up my library of old favourites now that my sight has deteriorated and I can o longer see well enough to read them myself.
As in all Jane Austin's books I love the development of her characters, descriptions, and the plot. It is also set in an era I particularly like.
Yes I have and enjoyed them as I did this one.
Stick to the story as written!
