Persuasion

by Austen, Jane

Written in her final illness, Persuasion is Jane Austen's finest novel.Eight years ago, Anne Elliot bowed to pressure from her family and made the decision not to marry the man she loved, Captain Wentworth. Now circumstances have conspired to bring him back into her social circle and Anne finds her old feelings for him reignited. However, when they meet again Wentworth behaves as if they are strangers and seems more interested in her friend Louisa. In this, her final novel, Jane Austen tells the story of a love that endures the tests of time and society with humor, insight, and tenderness. 

First Edition Identification

Persuasion was first published in 1818 in an edition with Northanger Abbey.  London: John Murray, 1818
