Of all Jane Austen's great and delightful novels, Persuasion is widely regarded as an emotionally moving story about having a second chance. Anne Elliot is a woman of quiet charm and deep feelings. When she was nineteen, she fell in love with-and was engaged to-the fearless and headstrong Captain Wentworth. But the young man had no fortune, and Anne allowed herself to be persuaded to give him up. Eight years later, Anne, still deeply in love but guided by her pride, and Wentworth, seemingly cold and unforgiving, are thrown together in the social world of Bath, and what happens next is touchingly and wittily told in a masterpiece that is also one of the most entrancing novels in the English language.
