Eight years ago, Anne Elliot was persuaded to break off her engagement to the man she loved: Frederick Wentworth, a handsome naval officer with neither wealth nor rank on his side.
Now, twenty-seven-year-old Anne remains unmarried…and unable to forget the man she fell in love with years ago. When Wentworth—now a successful captain in the navy—returns to the neighborhood, however, the two are given a second chance at love.
Persuasion is Jane Austen’s last completed novel, and widely considered to be the most poignant of all her works.
Beautifully edited and formatted, this edition includes discussion questions appropriate for book clubs, educational settings, or anyone who enjoys pondering books long after they’ve read the last word.
