Sir Walter Elliot demands advantageous love matches for his three daughters, and Anne's choice of the poor naval officer, Frederick Wentworth, simply won't do

But as she contemplates the bitter-sweet ending to her own life story, can she bring herself to give Anne and Wentworth a happy one?

Mark Healy's faithful yet inventive adaptations of Jane Austen's treasured novels are terrifically actable and readable
