Sidelined by her vain father, Sir Walter Elliot, and her self-indulgent elder sister, Elizabeth, Anne Elliot has always been swayed by others in her life decisions. Tough times force the Elliots to shift from their beloved home, Kellynch Hall, to Bath and Anne uses this opportunity to visit her sister, Mary Musgrove. But this trip brings with it a fated meeting with the man she had once loved and rejected�Captain Frederick Wentworth. Confronted with each other again as they move in the same social circle, will Captain Wentworth get over the past? Will Anne step out of her shell and the boundaries set by her family�s false sense of pride to come to terms with her true feelings for the Captain? In Persuasion, Jane Austen uses a host of characters to string together a tale of love, while remarking on the societal facades and eccentricities of the English in the early 19th-century.
