Wentworth is a sailor, with no money and an uncertain future, says Lady Russell - just a nobody, certainly not worthy of a baronets daughter.

Anne is still unmarried, but Captain Wentworth clearly prefers the company of the two Musgrove girls...Jane Austens tale of love and marriage is told with humour and a sharp understanding of human behaviour.
