‘She had been forced into prudence in her youth, she learned romance as she grew older: the natural sequel of an unnatural beginning.’


Written at the end of the Napoleonic Wars, Persuasion is a tale of love, heartache and the determination of one woman as she strives to reignite a lost love.


Anne Elliot is persuaded by her friends and family to reject a marriage proposal from Captain Wentworth because he lacks in fortune and rank. More than seven years later, when he returns home from the Navy, Anne realises she still has strong feelings for him, but Wentworth only appears to have eyes for a friend of Anne’s.


Moving, tender, but intrinsically ‘Austen’ in style, with it’s satirical portrayal of the vanity of society in eighteenth-century England, Persuasion celebrates enduring love and hope.

Jane Austen

Jane Austen was an English novelist, known for her six novels that critiqued the novels of sensibility of the 18th century. These novels also represent the transition to 19th-century literary realism. These famous novels are Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park ( 1814), and Emma (1816). She also wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818.
