Persuasion

All the privilege I claim for my own sex...is that of loving longest, when existence or when hope is gone.. Anne Elliots heartfelt words strike the keynote of Jane Austens last completed novel. It features a heroine older and wiser than her predecessors in earlier books, and its tone is more intimate and sober as Jane Austen unfolds a simple love-story.

Anne Elliots heartfelt words strike the keynote of Jane Austens last completed novel. It features a heroine older and wiser than her predecessors in earlier books, and its tone is more intimate and sober as Jane Austen unfolds a simple love-story.
