When Anne Elliot removes directly to Bath with her family to satisfy Sir Walter's need to retrench but desire for society, she does so reluctantly. She intends to make the best of her situation, finding friends and occupations enough in the town to keep her busy and useful and leaving her little time to dwell on the couple who have taken on tenancy of Kellynch Hall, or the gentleman from her own past who must likely make his home there with them before too long.

Captain Frederick Wentworth cannot bear the thought of returning to Somerset, let alone to Anne Elliot's former home, for he has not forgotten her nor the heartbreak she caused him by ending their engagement eight years previously. He instead stays on in Bath, where he might be safe from such remembrance – until Anne herself crosses his path.

Unexpectedly reunited by this twist of fate, can Captain Wentworth and Anne Elliot resolve their past misunderstanding and rediscover the love they once shared, or will Anne's family and Frederick's pride again prevent them from finding happiness?

This is book one of the Fate and Fortune series, a variation on Jane Austen's Persuasion.
