Persuasion by Jane Austen

Persuasion makes 5 out of 6 in my quest to read all of Jane Austen's novels.  I did not know anything whatsoever about the plot and found it entertaining.  Anne Elliot, our heroine, let the love of her life get away when she was 19 at the advice of a family friend.  Seven years later, as the novel begins, Anne is still single and now dangerously close to spinsterhood.  Lucky for her, circumstances conspire to bring her hero back on the scene.  This was a quick read compared to the other Austen novels and I appreciated that!  Next up, a re-read of Pride and Prejudice!
