Jane Austen`s final novel is her most mature and wickedly satirical. It follows the story of Anne Elliott, who as a teenager, was engaged to a seemingly ideal man, Frederick Wentworth. But after being persuaded by her friend Lady Russell that he is too poor to be a suitable match, Anne ends their engagement. When they are reacquainted eight years later, their circumstances are transformed: Frederick is returning triumphantly from the Napoleonic War, while Anne`s fortunes are floundering. Will their past regrets prevent them from finding future happiness? Gorgeously illustrated by Hugh Thomson, this Macmillan Collector`s Library edition of Persuasion also includes an afterword by author and critic Henry Hitchings. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector`s Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector`s Library are books to love and treasure.
