Anne Elliot, heroine of Austen's last novel, did something we can all relat e to: Long ago, she let the love of her life get away. In this case, she ha d allowed herself to be persuaded by a trusted family friend that the young man she loved wasn't an adequate match, social stationwise, and that Anne could do better. The novel opens some seven years after Anne sent her beau packing, and she's still alone. But then the guy she never stopped loving c omes back from the sea. As always, Austen's storytelling is so confident, y ou can't help but allow yourself to be taken on the enjoyable journey.
