You've probably read Pride and Prejudice (or seen one of the film adaptations), but have you read Persuasion? Jane Austen's last completed novel, its tone is more satirical than her earlier works. It features as its heroine Anne Elliot, 27 years old (!) and still unmarried, regretful that she let her family talk her out of an engagement years earlier. But this is a hopeful novel overall, about second chances and learning to trust one's own counsel. I've read all six of Austen's novels, and this is my favorite.— From Jill's Picks
“Critics, especially [recently], value Persuasion highly, as the author’s ‘most deeply felt fiction,’ ‘the novel which in the end the experienced reader of Jane Austen puts at the head of the list.’ . . . Anne wins back Wentworth and wins over the reader; we may, like him, end up thinking Anne’s character ‘perfection itself.’” –from the Introduction by Judith Terry
