Plot:Twenty-seven-year old Anne Elliot is Austen’s most adult heroine. Eight years before the story proper begins, she is happily betrothed to a naval officer, Frederick Wentworth, but she precipitously breaks off the engagement when persuaded by her friend Lady Russell that such a match is unworthy. The breakup produces in Anne a deep and long-lasting regret. When later Wentworth returns from sea a rich and successful captain, he finds Anne’s family on the brink of financial ruin and his own sister a tenant in Kellynch Hall, the Elliot estate. All the tension of the novel revolves around one question: Will Anne and Wentworth be reunited in their love?
My Rating – 🌟 🌟 🌟🌟🌟
Mini Thoughts :The final work of Jane Austen surely doesn’t disappoint me rather I love the book and it’s heroine . This book has certainly a more mature heroine as Anne Elliot . I totally loved the book it was sooooo good and a perfect classic. I can’t stop adding this book in my FAVORITE CLASSIC Shelf . The plot and the writing style are superb and so was the characters’ development. If you love Classics and old world charm ,you will surely love the Book.
Jane Austen once compared her writing to painting on a little bit of ivory, 2 inches square. Readers of Persuasion will discover that neither her skill for delicate, ironic observations on social custom, love, and marriage nor her ability to apply a sharp focus lens to English manners and morals has deserted her in her final finished work.
