Persuasion

Persuasion

Featuring one of her most likeable characters, this sparkling love story set in a seaside resort is Jane Austen's final finished work. Since Anne Elliot eight years ago rejected the marriage proposal of Captain Wentworth, a penniless naval officer, she has resigned herself to a quiet life at home, tending to the imagined needs of her spoiled sisters and vain father (Austen's brilliant, utterly conceited creation, Sir Walter Elliot). But when Captain Wentworth reappears in their midst, having made his fortune at sea, Anne must ask herself whether she made the right decision-or allowed herself to be persuaded against her heart. Jane Austen's last completed novel and her most optimist
