Synopsis
Jane Austen’s last – and in some instances, most biting – work Persuasion, was published in 1818, just after Austen’s death. In it, Anne Elliott, as likable as any heroine but for one instance of bad judgment when she broke off her engagement to a poor naval officer at the behest of friends and family, comes face to face with the suitor she jilted long ago. He is now wealthy, she is still single – and while the machinations of shallower and feebler minds initially keep the erstwhile lovers apart, in the end – as in all Austen novels – true love must triumph.
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.
