Persuaded not to marry Wentworth due to his uncertain prospects and lack of current fortune, Anne Elliot broke off her engagement. Now seven years later, a decline in her family's fortune has forced them to lease Kellynch to the Crofts, leading to Anne re-encounter the now-Captain Wentworth. A brilliant satire of vanity, pretension, and missed opportunities, Persuasion marks the need to have fortitude in the face of what one knows is right. 345 pages, softcover.
