Persuasion by Jane Austen


by Jane Austen

Title Details

Running Time
8 Hrs. 30 Min.


Narrated by Tony Award-winning actress and musician Cynthia Erivo, Persuasion is one of the most moving love stories Austen ever penned. It's the story of Anne Elliott, Jane Austen's only aging heroine, who has devoted her life to caring for her financially irresponsible family. Just when she is growing content with her uneventful lifestyle, a long-lost love re-enters the picture — now as the potential beau of her significantly younger cousin. Anne is then faced with a choice: will she watch Captain Wentworth settle into life with another woman, or will she strive to win back his love and escape her family? Austen understood that mediated and misdirected messages frequently carry a far greater charge than explicit declarations. Persuasion pulsates with the energy of the lovers’ efforts to communicate, often indirectly, across gaps of time and perspective.
