  • A prodigal baronet, the widowed Sir Walter Elliot lives with his daughters Anne and Elizabeth at Kellynch Hall. Anne, the younger of Elliot's unmarried offspring, is a comely, dutiful woman but a deeply melancholy soul. She's been heartbroken ever since Lady Russell, a trusted family friend, persuaded Anne to refuse the marriage proposal of naval officer Frederick Wentworth on account of his lack of fortune. Finding himself on the brink of financial ruin, Sir Walter Elliot rents out Kellynch Hall while he and the girls vacation at Bath. An ironic twist of fate brings the now wealthy Captain Wentworth and his relatives to the Elliot estate as seasonal tenants. So, Anne's beloved Frederick Wentworth enters her world once more. But there's no certainty love will bloom again.
