Anne Elliot is intelligent and fairly attractive. She is 27 and unmarried. She was once engaged to Frederick Wentworth, a naval officer without fortune, but the engagement was broken when friends and family persuaded her to reject him on account of his situation. It was seven years ago. Anne could never forget him and loves him still when he re-enters her life. He has rank and fortune now, having done exceptionally well in the Napoleonic Wars. Apparently, the conditions are ripe for a coveted second chance at love for both of them. Published posthumously in 1817, Persuasion was Jane Austen s last completed novel. A profound satire of her vain society, it has been hailed as her most mature work.

About the Author

One of all time literary favourites, Jane Austen was born at Steventon rectory, England on December 16, 1775. She started writing poems, stories and plays as early as 1787 which she compiled in three bound notebooks. Those early works were later published as Juvenilia. Then, she wrote Lady Susan, a novella in epistolary form. However, it remained unpublished for a long time. Having written Lady Susan, she penned down six novels, four of which were published during her life as follows: Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1815). rthanger Abbey (1818) and Persuasion (1818) were published posthumously. Two of her novels The Watsons and Sanditon, though published later on, remained unfinished. Austen died on July 18, 1817.
