Rebecca’s book reviews

Persuasion is considered Jane Austen's most mature novel by many. Of her 6 major novels, this is my personal favorite. Ms. Austen's wit, talent for writing dialogue and developing complex, characters shines.

This novel is a story of an experience many of us have lived - one of great love lost and regretted. Anne Elliott gets a second chance at love she was once persuaded to forego.

Pay attention to the first 2 chapters. The development of the characters is fantastic.
