A woman of no importance, she manoeuvres in her restricted circumstances as her long-time love Captain Wentworth did in the wars. Even though she is nearly thirty, well past the sell-by bloom of youth, Austen makes her win out for herself and for others like herself, in a regenerated society.
Any Jane Austen book is a must-read for any girl or woman!
Persuasion belongs to my top two favourites by Jane A. (first is Pride and Prejudice, obviously). I think every girl/woman needs a little romance nowadays with all the mobiles, tablets, internet and technology (which actually took the place of letters, notes and serenades under the balcony :-)). Reading about romantic moments and unspoken love between people of a few centuries ago, when a touch of hand or a letter was so full of hidden emotions, would make any heart flutter with joy!
