Anne resigns herself to living quietly at home, surrounded by her fretful sisters and nonsensical father. But captain Wentworth has made his fortune at sea and has returned to England, where Anne is sure to meet him again. Now she must ask herself if she made the right decision, and if it is too late to alter it.  Stop by the library and pick up your copy today.  Contact Rachel Kuhn at 866-5881.
