About this title

Synopsis:

“I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives.” ..........Jane Austen completed her final novel, “Persuasion” in 1816. She died just one year later, age 41. “Persuasion” was originally published bound in a single volume with “Northanger Abbey” as both novels were set in the fashionable city of Bath, of which Austen was well acquainted. While essentially a touching love story, Austen nonetheless expresses her profound concerns about the pressures and choices facing the young women of her day.

Review:

Anne Elliot, heroine of Austen's last novel, did something we can all relate to: Long ago, she let the love of her life get away. In this case, she had allowed herself to be persuaded by a trusted family friend that the young man she loved wasn't an adequate match, social stationwise, and that Anne could do better. The novel opens some seven years after Anne sent her beau packing, and she's still alone. But then the guy she never stopped loving comes back from the sea. As always, Austen's storytelling is so confident, you can't help but allow yourself to be taken on the enjoyable journey.
