I also recently reread Jane Austen’s Persuasion. I’m not going to attempt a critique of a Jane Austen novel, but I’ll share a little synopsis. It’s an entertaining read!
Eight years previous, Anne “formed an attachment” with the dashing Frederick Wentworth, a young man without name or fortune. They would have married, but young Anne was advised to end the attachment. Well, as you can guess, they meet again but under very different circumstances. Captain Wentworth has made his fortune and can now hold his own in Anne’s social circle.
Mr. Elliot (a cousin with suspicious motives), Mrs. Clay (an intruder into the family circle with a protruding tooth), and Lady Russell (Anne’s friend) round out the cast of leading characters.
