Persuasion - Jane Austen, Gillian Beer

*happy sigh*

Just

*happy sigh*

Which is odd, because in general and in particular, I HATE with a passion those love stories which rely upon a previous love returning. I think the difference with Persuasion is that I really love Anne, and I'd happily read about her doing anything. Also Jane Austen's humour (in particular the delightfully and lightly sketched hypocrisy of Mary, Anne's sister) makes this a great read
