Is ideal for special-edition book collectors, Jane Austen aficionados, fans of literary fiction and classic literature, and people who love both the book and the movies it inspires

Whether you're buying this as a gift or for yourself, this remarkable limited edition features:

Decorative interior pages featuring pull quotes distributed throughout
Part of a 6-volume Jane Austen series including Northanger Abbey, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, and Emma

At twenty-seven, Anne Elliot is no longer considered young enough for worthy romantic prospects. Eight years earlier, she had been persuaded by her friend Lady Russell to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a handsome naval captain with neither fortune nor rank. What transpires when they encounter each other again is movingly told in Jane Austen's last completed novel. A brilliant satire of vanity and pretension, Persuasion is, above all, a love story tinged with the heartache of missed opportunities.

Persuasion by Jane Austen is one of six titles completing the Jane Austen collection, which includes Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, and Northanger Abbey.
