Persuasion is Jane Austen's last completed novel, published in 1817. At the age of nineteen, Anne Elliott fell deeply in love with handsome naval captain Frederick Wentworth. But with neither fortune nor rank to recommend him, Anne's family was against the match and persuaded her to break off the engagement. Eight years later, Anne's family is in financial difficulty and has been forced to rent their home, Kellynch Hall. Their tenants, Admiral Croft and Mrs Croft, are brother-in-law and sister to Captain Wentworth. Will old passions be rekindled?

One of England's most beloved authors, Jane Austen wrote such classic novels as Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Northanger Abbey. Published anonymously during her life, Austen's work was renowned for its realism, humour, and commentary on English social rites and society at the time. Austen's writing was supported by her family, particularly by her brother, Henry, and sister, Cassandra, who is believed to have destroyed, at Austen's request, her personal correspondence after Austen's death in 1817. Austen's authorship was revealed by her nephew in A Memoir of Jane Austen, published in 1869, and the literary value of her work has since been recognized by scholars around the world.
