Perhaps the most mature and sentimental of Jane Austen's novels, Persuasion deals with Anne Elliot, a twenty something quickly becoming an old maid in the eyes of the world. Having been persuaded to pass up true love seven years before she is tortured when she realizes that her family's estate is to be rented by the sister and brother law of the very Captain Wentworth she'd reluctantly refused so long ago. Dreading their meting she finds him apparently indifferent, and watches as he seemingly falls for another. But is there any hope for her future happiness? Jane Austin explores not the birth of love but it's enduring and deathless quality in her last and perhaps best novel.
