The Persuasion of Miss Jane Austen by Shannon Winslow

Posted on

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00034]You guys know I love Jane Austen everything. Sara gave me this book for Christmas and I just finished it, and I loved it! Persuasion is one of my favorite love stories. I have both movie versions and have watched them a million times. So this story was just extra fun for a Persuasion fan. Here’s the book blurb:

What if the tale Jane Austen told in her last, most poignant novel was actually inspired by momentous events in her own life? Did she in fact intend Persuasion to stand forever in homage to her one true love?

This story weaves together Jane’s own experience (fictional) as she writes Persuasion. In this novel, it’s Jane’s own love story that inspires Anne Elliot’s! I’m a sucker for these kinds of stories, and I found this one to be extremely well-written and engaging. This was my first Shannon Winslow novel but I have a feeling I’ll be reading more. She’s the author of The Darcys of Pemberley, Return to Longbourn and more. Her website is http://www.shannonwinslow.com. All Austenites should check her out ASAP.

On another note, loveys, my author page on Facebook is up and running! Hop over to LIKE my page and I’ll love you forever! And spread the word! https://www.facebook.com/authorBrandyBruce?pnref=lhc.recent
