Synopsis
Had she not died at the tender age of 41, Persuasion certainly wouldn't stand as Jane Austen's last completed novel. Published in 1818, the year after she died, Persuasion broke new ground for Austen, primarily because its central character, Anne Elliot, is well past her youth and unmarried. Breaking off her engagement because he was ambitious but poor, she runs into her one-time fiancé several years later. Now a famous and wealthy sea captain, he has not forgotten Anne, nor forgiven her. What unfolds is for you to find out, as you enjoy Jane's final work of fiction.
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.
