A Jane Austen Novel Reflects modern problems
Customer review by Funkster1
The presentation truncates some of the details in Jane Austen's "Persuasion". Many of us live beyond our income to the point of using Chapter 13 Bankruptcy which is the start point of this novel. Most of us do not understand the significance of the Great Britain's Peerage system though we flaunt our apparent wealth in other ways that are unacceptable. In this version the family remembers Anne's thwarted engagement at the beginning of the story and we become aware that the memory is painful. The story then unfolds with a now successful and paid out Captain Wentworth returning to the shire looking for a wife, his and Anne's painful re-acquaintance, and their reattachment and marriage. It is done in an entertaining way consistent with the novel.
