Persuasion is by Jane Austen. Classic Austen, fans of Pride and Prejudice will like Persuasion. Persuasion may even tempt those who are not fans of P&P. Anne Elliot was persuaded to break off her engagement with Frederick Wentworth because he was "beneath her family's class." Eight years later, both still unmarried, they meet again. The now wealthy "Captain" Wentworth appears again in her social circle. Is this their second chance? Can he forgive her, does he still love her? Can he be persuaded this time? Wonderful Austen fare. A must read classic book.

Ratings: 10th grade - 9 out of 10.
