Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Persuasion is a sweet & subtle love story. It is a story of family. It is a story of heartbreak. I found Anne Elliot to be a very sweet girl. She is quiet and happy to stay in the background, but strong enough to be there whenever someone needs her. Her father and sisters are obnoxious with their caring only about their station in society and appearances. Anne was once in love with Captain Wentworth. But she was forced to break off their engagement, because his station in life wasn't suitable. Eight years later, he comes back into her life. He has bettered his circumstances considerable, and her family hopes to make a union. Anne doesn't believe The Captain cares about her anymore, so as Anne usually does she hides in the background and lets her sisters and cousins vie for his attention.
