Enjoy this InAudio presentation of Persuasion by Jane Austen. Delight in what literary critics say is the peak of Jane Austen’s writing skills–and her final completed novel.
Persuasion is Jane Austen’s final completed novel and has been critically acclaimed as the most maturely written of Austen’s novels. It was posthumously published in 1817, just six months after Austen’s death.
Persuasion follows Anne Elliot, a strong young woman, as she is reacquainted with her once-fiance Frederick Wentworth. In Austen’s beloved witty writing, the story follows the duo and their families as they face financial troubles, criss-crossed relationships, the strong emotions of jealousy and unrequited affection, and the societal pressures of the age.
With a charming cast of characters and told in signature Austen flair, this is a story of the power of being true to one’s self and the power of love above societal struggles.
