At twenty-seven, Anne Elliot is no longer young and has few romantic prospects. Eight years earlier, she had been persuaded by her friend Lady Russell to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a handsome naval captain with neither fortune nor rank. What happens when they encounter each other again is movingly told in Jane Austen's last completed novel. Set in the fashionable societies of Lyme Regis and Bath, Persuasion is a brilliant satire of vanity and pretension, but, above all, it is a love story tinged with the heartache of missed opportunities.

    " I enjoyed Persuasion about as much as Pride and Prejudice. I found Anne the most interesting of all Austen's heroines. I really enjoyed reading about an old lady of twenty and eight. The world used to be a horrifying place. "

    " This book is super-romantic if you are young, white, and upper class! At least it is more gender-equal! "
