by Jane Austen
Eight years ago, Anne Elliot followed the advice of Lady Russell, her only true friend, and broke off her engagement to the dashing young naval officer Frederick Wentworth. When Anne and the now wealthy Captain Wentworth cross paths years later, it is clear that he has neither forgotten—nor forgiven—their past. Can true love survive heartbreak? Who should we listen to in matters of the heart?
Filled with Jane Austen’s trademark wit, Persuasion is both a delightful romantic comedy and a surprisingly subversive exploration of our need to persuade, and be persuaded by, others.
