Jane Austen's last novel, Persuasion is the crowning achievement of her matchless career. It is widely regarded as the most moving and delightful of all her novels.
It is a story of second chances. When Anne Elliot was nineteen, she fell in love with and was engaged to the fearless and headstrong Captain Wentworth. But the young man had no fortune, and Anne allowed herself to be persuaded, against her profoundest instinct, to give him up. Now, at twenty-seven, and believing that she has lost her bloom, Anne is startled to learn that Captain Wentworth has returned to the neighborhood, a rich man and still unwed.
Join Dr. Kellie Donovan-Condron, professor of literature at Babson College for this "Smarty-pants" discussion of Persuasion.
