Persuasion cover artFrom the Classics Series

by Jane Austen

with an introduction by Kerry van der Vinne

“Anne left the room to seek the comfort of cool air for her flushed cheeks. ‘A few months more and he may be walking here.’”

ANNE ELLIOT is a woman with regrets. At the age of 27 she is considered a lost cause romantically. In spite of this, Anne is kind, dutiful and sensible… But when the man she was once persuaded to refuse re-enters her acquaintance, she is forced to contrast him with her father’s heir, long-estranged from the family, and only just arrived on the scene.

JANE AUSTEN (best known for writing Pride and Prejudice) continues to delight readers with her witty and perceptive take on the role of women and class in late eighteenth century British society. In recent years her novels have been adapted and reinterpreted for film and television many times.
