    I've read all of Jane Austin's books and must say this might be my favorite!! It is truly a romance. Love endures through time and space, through age and circumstance. And only love can bring true happiness!
  • Austen's best?

    While Pride and Prejudice might be Austen's best-crafted plot and characters, Persuasion is her best page-turner. It is hard to put down and easy to quote!

    This has the worst of Austen’s failings: everything happens inside the heroine’s head, there’s almost no conversation between the two principles, and after building and building to a desired end, when it comes, it’s delivered in summary, as if you were reading a blurb for a movie. She’s an author who goes under or around her fences, and that is limp, disappointing, and not endearing.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book, once I acquainted myself with the old English way of speaking.
