Jane Austen's last novel Persuasion was written in 1816 and was published posthumously in 1818. The title was not chosen by Jane Austen; some have said she meant to call this The Elliots. Her brother chose this title.

In the novel, Anne Elliot, the heroine Austen called almost too good for me, has let herself be persuaded not to marry Frederick Wentworth, a fine and attractive man without means. Eight years later, Captain Wentworth returns from the Napoleonic Wars with a triumphant naval career behind him, a substantial fortune to his name, and an eagerness to wed. Austen explores the complexities of human relationships as they change over time. Download and start listening now!

    " I am an Austen fan. Her dialogue between the characters is fantastic. This is another book I felt compelled to read after seeing the movie (BBC). The constraints of the society during this time in history make it seem like romantic love was an impossibility. I think I like this book better than Pride and Prejudice because the characters are older and more flawed. "
