Synopsis : At twenty-seven, Anne Elliot is no longer young and has few romantic prospects. Eight years earlier, she had been persuaded by her friend Lady Russell to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a handsome naval captain with neither fortune nor rank. What happens when they encounter each other again is movingly told in Jane Austen's last completed novel. Set in the fashionable societies of Lyme Regis and Bath, Persuasion is a brilliant satire of vanity and pretension, but, above all, it is a love story tinged with the heartache of missed opportunities.
Synopsis: A beautiful novel about true love which lasts and survives several obstacles including a long separation. Anne Elliott broke all ties with Captain Wentworth, a naval officer, eight years ago after being persuaded that it was in everybodys best interest. Through this touching love story Austen also criticizes the hypocrisy and meaningless class distinction prevalent in her society. A must read!
