My absolute favorite Jane Austen book is Persuasion. There’s just something about a love that lasts through years of separation. So, of course, was thrilled to read this modern-day retelling.
About the Book
At seventeen, Anne found the love of her life in an ambitious, yet troubled ex-foster boy. However, her wealthy family persuaded her to keep on her path to a prestigious career instead of running away with a boy with no future.
Eight years later, she finds herself with no career, little money, and a heart still pining for that ex-foster boy. When she accidentally runs into him–now handsome, rich, and working for the prestigious Pemberley Estates Corporation–she discovers he still hasn’t forgiven her yet. How in the world is she going to convince him to give her a second chance?
“Persuading Him” is a stand-alone, clean/sweet, second-chance romance with a guaranteed happily ever after, plus with some other Austen characters sprinkled in. It tells the tale completely from Anne’s side. Check out the companion novel for Rick’s side.
