I’m completely lost with this one. There was no explanation for how Anne “wakes up” five years in the future.

Anne accepting her cousin William Elliot two months after refusing Wentworth is NOT believable at all. I was at a loss to even find traces of Austen’s Anne and Wentworth in Kaye’s versions of them which deeply saddens me, as I loved her two part Wentworth series (None But You and For You Alone).

Anne marries the wrong man who abuses her and neglects her. Then she suddenly, somehow finds the right man but there are misunderstandings and secrets from the past that threaten their welfare.

All I have to say is "Huh?!" There are so many things wrong with this story. I really do not think Jane Austen intended for Anne Elliot to turn into this shadow of herself. Anne is intelligent and capable for all she's put upon in the original so I don't see how she would have ended up in this situation.

First off, this book is 165 pages, a little more than a novella and not the 300 pages catologued here.

If you haven't read Susan Kaye's novels, 'None but you' and 'For you alone' stop here and read those!!

No one writes Cptain Wentworth like Kaye does. Her re-imagining is magnificent! I'd like to see Abigail Reynolds attempt to rework Persuasion because she may be the only author right now able to out-Wentworth Susan Kaye

As to this novella, there is an unexplained plot point which completely baff

I loved this thought provoking book by Susan Kaye, one of my favorite authors. I raced through the first half of the book, collecting clues to solve the puzzle concerning Anne and Frederick. It was a lovely ride with a satisfying ending. I look forward to reading the rest of Kaye's books.

Had some trouble understanding this book. I thought it wasn't quite right. It didn't feel like Anne and Wentworth.
