Eight years ago, Anne Elliot fell in love with a poor but ambitious young naval officer, Frederick Wentworth. The Elliots were dissatisfied with Anne's choice, feeling he was not distinguished enough for their family, and her older friend and mentor, Lady Russell, acting in place of Anne's deceased mother, persuaded her to break off the match. Now 27 and considered a spinster, Anne re-encounters her former fiance, now a captain, as he courts her spirited young neighbour, Louisa Musgrove. The self-interested machinations of Anne's older sister Elizabeth, of Elizabeth's friend Mrs. Clay, and of Anne's father's heir, William Elliot, constitute an important subplot. (Summary from Wikipedia).

Excellent performance of a classic

Elizabeth Plett's narration beautifully captures characters through her skilled voice portrayals. She uses her American accent for the narration, while she performs each character using English accents. I've read this book at least a dozen times and still gained new insights and much enjoyment listening to this version.
