Sophy Croft, from Jane Austen’s Persuasion, gets her own story.
One of Jane Austen’s best-loved books is Persuasion, and of the characters in it, among the most popular are Sophy and Admiral Croft, dashing Frederick Wentworth’s sister and brother-in-law.
In this short novel, Sherwood Smith takes a look at what the Wentworths’ lives might have been like before they met the Elliots, and Sophy’s view of Anne Elliot’s and Frederick Wentworth’s stormy relationship–and how she might have had a hand in bringing about that happy ending.
