Persuasion is one of a series of retellings of classic literature by publisher Real Reads. True to the original plot, characters and themes, Real Reads also imitate the original author's style. An intelligent, lively and enjoyable introduction to this classic tale.

Eight years ago, Anne Elliott was persuaded that her family's honour was more important than her own happiness. She has suffered ever since. Now the man she turned away has returned. Can Captain Wentworth forgive Anne, or will he be charmed instead by the beautiful Louisa? Will Anne be persuaded to marry her cousin, or will she find the strength to follow her heart?

The extravagance of Anne's foolish father, the greedy plotting of false friends, and a near-fatal accident bring danger into Anne's safe world. Their hearts assailed by resentment, regrets and rivals, can Anne and Captain Wentworth now reach across the void that separates them to love each other again?

    " Started reading this to prepare for the play. As a man, I found it very difficulty to plow through the start of this book. Austen's manner of writing can be unnecessarily convoluted in its grammar and composition. By the end she hooked me on the characters and really got me interested in the resolution. Looking forward to reading Pride and Prejudice With Zombies. "

    " Much more enjoyable than Emma, very tender and human. Took time to get into gear, but disappointing to get to the end and have to leave Anne Elliott. "
