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.
Persuasion is a beautiful love story, written with the same authentic candor that is characteristic of Jane Austen. Although Pride and Prejudice is probably her most well-known work, this book definitely keeps up with it. So if you liked P&P, you should definitely read this one. The plot is well developed, the characters are relatable. I wish she developed the "history" of the main characters a bit more, but it's a very satisfying read. I love it.
Read the letter from Wentworth to Anne in the end.
I love all of Austen's books, but this is my favorite. I love the quiet suspense! Amazing!
