in consequence of the missive, Chapter 17 - Anne and Mr Elliot..., penned by Moni
It is interesting, and the first time I notice this - Anne and her mother are very alike, as we are told. They are both intelligent and sensible - only Lady Elliot had erred in her youth to be captivated by the beauty and status of Sir Walter. Here Anne is tempted in a similar way, almost like her tragic fate, but she proves stronger than her mother - not so entirely alike after all. But then again, Anne is older and she is protected by her heart being engaged to a man like Wentworth. Also, she loves her home, though I don't think she was happy there - just for the memory of her mother, but she quite likes the idea of the Crofts living there and making it in a way a better place than it had been and this helps her further in making a closure on Kellynch and able to reject Mr Elliot as a possible husband.
