Chapter 6 Summary

Anne is unsettled by the upheaval from her home, but Mary is not as unkind to her as Elizabeth was. Mary's husband is also agreeable and Anne's nephews respect her more than they respect their own mother. Anne often thinks that if her brother-in-law Charles had married a better match, he would have been a better man. Charles seems to handle the children better than Mary. Anne is often put in the middle of their disagreements. She is also put in the middle of problems between Mary and her mother in law Mrs. Musgrove.

The day comes when the Crofts are to move into Kellynch Hall. Mary and Anne go to visit them. During their conversation, the Crofts mention that they are expecting Mrs. Croft's brother. Anne wonders which brother will visit, Edward or Frederick. She soon finds that the expected guest is Captain Frederick Wentworth.
