    Anne Elliot has grieved for seven years over the loss of her first love, Captain Frederick Wentworth. But events conspire to unravel the knots of deceit and misunderstanding in this beguiling and gently comic story of love and fidelity.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Persuasion the most enjoyable?

    This is my favorite Austen novel. Its subtle wit and treatment of love, friendship, and avarice are timeless.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Persuasion?

    Anne's conversation with Captain Harville about constancy, which is overheard by Captain Wentworth and inspires his letter to Anne. Always a tear jerker.


    What didn’t you like about Juliet Stevenson’s performance?

    The reader is way, way too dramatic. Jane Austen's style is elegantly simple and straightforward, and the book deserves to be read without the annoying embellishment Juliet Stevenson gives it.
