Anne Elliot lost the love of her life eight years earlier and the sorrow lingers on. Yet the dashing Captain Wentworth did not desert her; it was Anne who rejected him because she was persuaded that she could make a better match.
She never did.
Suddenly, life deals them a second chance. Anne and Wentworth meet again on the social circuit. He acts coolly and even openly courts a younger woman, but Anne remains painfully alert for the slightest hint that their love might be rekindled.
Persuasion was Jane Austen’s last novel, published posthumously in 1818.

About the Author:
Jane Austen was born on December 16, 1775. As a child, she wrote plays and parodies to amuse her family but began writing novels in earnest during her teens.
Her first published work was Sense and Sensibility, which she began to write sometime around 1797 before it reached the public in 1811. After that, she wrote five more novels that have led her to her becoming one of the most recognised names in English literature today.
Celebrated for her strong female characters and her sharp insights into English middle-class life in the early 19th century, the five novels Austen penned alongside Sense and Sensibility - Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, Emma and Persuasion – remain classics beloved by every new generation of reader.
Her last novel, Persuasion, was written in 1815-1816, while Jane Austen was suffering from her fatal illness. She was still working on some revisions at the time of her death in 1817. The novel was published posthumously by her brother, Henry Austen.
