Summary

Anne Elliot made a big mistake: she let the love of her life get away. But seven years later, he comes back from the sea.

As with all Jane Austen novels, this draws much of its appeal from the author's talent for observation and satire. The snobberies of a genteel world are exposed by its demurely mischievious heroine.

Critic reviews

"In this, Jane Austen's last completed work, satire and ridicule take a milder form, and the tone is more grave and tender." ( The Concise Oxford Companion to English Literature)
"Anna Massey's quietly humorous tones are effective in bringing out...the subtle irony of Persuasion. Austen admirers will savor every word." ( The Good Book Guide)
