Anne Elliott, Jane Austen's only aging heroine, has devoted her life to caring for her financially irresponsible family. Just when she is growing content with her uneventful lifestyle, a long-lost flame re-enters the picture -- now as the beau of her significantly younger cousin. Anne is now faced with a choice: will she watch Captain Wentworth settle into life with another woman, or will she strive to win back his love and escape her family?

Nice story, glad to see at least one of Austen's books has a character leads over the age of 20 !
This was awesome. It was my first read (is that what it's called?) and it really got me into LibriVox YOU HAVE TO READ IT!!!!!!!!
Would give five stars if I had been able to hear all readers well. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed the variety of reading styles as much as I did. Thank you all.
Always a favorite of mine! Having different readers was not to hard to listen too.

I find this story to be one of my favorite Jane Austen books. It is captivating in many areas of the story. This story also could have been written for the 21st century. For people never change no matter what year or century you live in.
Some good, some bad
The narration by Tina are wonderful, but Ms. Savage speaks far too fast!
not the best version
the novel is excellent. I prefer the readings by Karen Savage and Elizabeth Klett.
I have always loved this story and will continue so until my dying day.
