Persuasion by Jane Austen August 4, 2009

Posted by Aubri in Romance, week 8.


“Persuasion” is the story of Anne Elliot, a shy girl living in 19th century England whose had a broken heart for years. When she was younger, she was proposed to by the love of her life, but was persuaded by a friend not to accept because she was of a higher social status. But years later he gets rich and comes back to town, bringing back all of Anne’s pain after she’s tried to forget him.
Although this may sound like a tragic book, it’s anything but that. It’s a beautiful tale of love, loyalty, and the power of persuasion, and has a very satisfying ending. The first couple of chapters are a little slow, but after that you can’t put it down. Definitely my favorite Jane Austen novel (even better than Pride and Prejudice).
