Persuasion: A Latter-day Tale

by Rebecca H Jamison


Quick Overview

When Anne broke off her engagement seven years ago, she thought she'd never see Neil Wentworth again. But when Neil's brother buys the house she grew up in, it seems fate has other plans in store, and Anne is woefully unprepared for the roller coaster of emotions that accompanies Neil's return. Fans of Persuasion will love this fast-paced, modern retelling of Jane Austen's most romantic novel.
  • Details

    This modern re-telling of the Jane Austen classic is set in an LDS(Mormon)community in Northern Virginia. Anne is a successful stockbroker. Neil Wentworth, now a Baltimore police officer, is the man she let get away when she was young and insecure. Fate throws them together when Neil's brother buys Anne's childhood home. Is it too late for Anne and Neil to right past mistakes and find happiness together? Though faithful to the overall plot of the beloved original, Rebecca H. Jamison manages to provide us with a thoroughly modern and likable cast of characters embroiled in fresh, creative situations. At the same time, she provides the non-LDS reader like myself a fascinating insight into the culture of this often misunderstood faith. Most of the novels I've read by LDS authors share the basic qualities reflecting the religion--the content is "clean" and the focus is on acting responsibly--but they don't necessarily show characters "being" Mormons. Jamison takes us right into ward life. She also goes a step further in that Anne and her sisters converted to the faith, but their parents have not. So there's an added layer of conflict and tension as Anne struggles to come to terms with a mother and father she loves deeply but cannot wholly connect with.
