Reader's note

Persuasion is Jane Austen's last completed novel, published six months after her death. Of all Jane Austen’s great and delightful novels, Persuasion is widely regarded as the most moving. This classic novel tells the story of Anne Elliot, daughter of the snobbish Sir Walter Elliot, who fell in love and was engaged to a naval officer; the fearless and headstrong Captain Wentworth. But the young man had no fortune, and Anne allowed herself to be persuaded to give him up. Now, eight years later, Wentworth has returned to the neighbourhood, a rich man but still unmarried. Anne’s still very present feelings for him are muffled by her pride and he seems to have become cold. The two are thrown together in the social world of Bath, England and their story is touchingly and wittily told in a masterpiece that is also one of the most entrancing novels in the English language. Add a pop of orange to your bookshelf with this lovely edition of Persuasion.
