by Jane Austen

In Jane Austen's novel Persuasion, Anne Elliot, the leading character, centers around her remorse and regret after breaking off an engagement. As a result of persuasion(hence the title), she has ended the relationship with her "true love." The novel takes place eight years after this incident, and takes its peak when her former love reappears into the community. I think this book will definitely be enjoyable, despite the slight difficulty with the language and organization. If you're a hopeless romantic, or have heard of Jane Austen- read this book!
