What a wonderful second story does Persuasion tell, the story of love lost and found ; of maturity and the attainment of success and triumph of love above class, reason and the influence of (mostly) good intentionned third parties.
Miss Anne Eliott is the push-over of her aristocatric family, a family filled with prejudices and intent on keeping up appearances, even when their income has been dilapidated. But Anne will overcome through good graces, good manners, and a solid sense which is somewhat lacking all around her.
As always, Jane Austen delivers a witty story filled with love, conventions, achievement of happiness beyond the loss of hope, and the success of a character one could at first not see asserting itself to that point.
Persuasion is a wonderful read.
