Synopsis
Persuasion is one of the finest examples of Jane Austen s ability to inject a simple premise with emotion, expand it with depth of character, and polish it with charm. Persuasion is the also one of the most poignant of Austen s romances, perhaps as a result of being her final finished work. Anne Elliot s former fiancé has acquired wealth and prestige in the years which have passed since their last meeting, the lack of which had prompted the family meddling which ended their engagement. Now Anne must persuade the embittered Wentworth of her sincerity once she is certain of it herself.
Amazon.com Review
Anne Elliot, heroine of Austen's last novel, did something we can all relate to: Long ago, she let the love of her life get away. In this case, she had allowed herself to be persuaded by a trusted family friend that the young man she loved wasn't an adequate match, social stationwise, and that Anne could do better. The novel opens some seven years after Anne sent her beau packing, and she's still alone. But then the guy she never stopped loving comes back from the sea. As always, Austen's storytelling is so confident, you can't help but allow yourself to be taken on the enjoyable journey.
