Summary

Jane Austen's Persuasion focuses on the regret and loneliness of Anne Elliot, who had rejected a proposal of marriage upon advice of a dear friend, from the one man she truly loved. The story takes place less than a decade after the proposal, following her simultaneous anticipation and dread of the rejected lover's return to the community. She struggles between the validity of the reasons for the old rejection and the flittering hope that their love had persevered. Persuasion is about a lost love re-kindled. Considered by some to be the most powerful love story ever written, the book will leave you breathless.

Fantastic!

Great narrator, brilliant and funny book.I have listened to this several times & read the book 4 or 5 times. Jane Austen’s final published book is her masterpiece. The satire is often subtle and bears re-reading or re-hearing. Totally enjoyable.

Austen Never Dissappoints

I loved the narration and the story just the same. Austen got me hooked and the narrator kept me going with her amazing voice which adapted to each character.
