Review:
"Even as a little girl, my favorite was, as it still is, 'Persuasion', the tale of a lonely, intelligent spinster of 27 who has been induced to give up her engagement to the man she loves. Her tale has a desperate, quiet intensity....It still moves me, when the more romantic heroines of my youth...have come to seem a little absurd."

Anthony Lane, 09/25/1995

Review:
"Unlike any of Austen's other novels, 'Persuasion' has a borrowed plot. It is an obvious version of the Cinderella story. Anne has two sisters, both of whom are mean to her...Her father...has no appreciation of Anne's goodness, talents, and sensibilities. The family uses Anne as a servant. And Captain Wentworth will be her Prince Charming. There is no evil stepmother in this Cinderella story, but Lady Russell is the obvious candidate. Austen's prose lifts this Cinderella plot..to the level of important literature."

A. S. Byatt, Washington Post Book World, 02/07/1999
