If you're a Jane Austen fan, you can't miss this. The story of love lost and then found again in the style that only Jane Austen can write. Keep the kleenex handy.

A Jane Austen classic with gentle satire, great characters and a wonderful look into the genteel world of 19th century England

Probably my favorite Austen novel! It was her last book and critics agree it is her most romantic. I adore the heroine (even more than- gasp- Elizabeth Bennett) because she is just an all-around good hearted lady who endures her family's indifference towards her. I, too, was in tears at the end after reading Cpt Wentworth's letter. Such a romantic book.

This 2004 edition came as a supplement to the dvd of Persuasion.

From Amazon.com: Anne Elliot, heroine of Austen's last novel, did something we can all relate to: Long ago, she let the love of her life get away. In this case, she had allowed herself to be persuaded by a trusted family friend that the young man she loved wasn't an adequate match, social stationwise, and that Anne could do better. The novel opens some seven years after Anne sent her beau packing, and she's still alone. But then the guy she never stopped loving comes back from the sea. As always, Austen's storytelling is so confident, you can't help but allow yourself to be taken on the enjoyable journey.
