Publisher's Summary

Anne Elliot lives at Kellynch Hall with her two sisters and vain father, Sir Walter. When financial struggles begin to affect the Elliot family, they decide to move to Bath. Anne decides to visit before the move and runs into many old friends. Most surprisingly, she is reunited with Fredrick Wentworth, a past fiancé who, under advice from her father and a friend, Lady Russell, never married. Wentworth's lack of wealth and rank in the community were their main concerns, and therefore, eight years later, Anne is still unmarried, with few romantic prospects. However, through her journey and move, Anne may find that what she has been looking for was right in front of her the whole time.

Rosalyn Landon brings Persuasion to life

I simply love Rosalyn Landor as a narrator. Her narration of this book is far superior than all others who have done so and gives the story a new dimension and vibrancy. All of Jane Austen’s works are particular favourites of mine but this one in particular. It is a sweet story of a love lost and found and one more over, that will stand the test of time. A truly timeless piece!

Jane Austen and Rosalyn Landor- A Perfect Match

The title of my review sums up my enjoyment of listening to this Audible book. Any Jane Austen book is worth reading; all of her books are classics. However, sometimes the colloquialisms, punctuation, etc. can occasionally make some portions of her books difficult to read. In a lesser narrator, they would be boring. However, Rosalyn Landor is my favorite narrator and she brought this book to life. She is able to differentiate the characters so that they are all distinct people while describing the events and Ann's inner thoughts in a way that increased my anticipation of what would follow. I cannot recommend an Audible book more highly.
