Rebecca H. Jamison's blog tour of
Persuasion: a latter day tale.
published by Cedar Fort Books
synopsis (from Goodreads)
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.
A perfect book for Valentine's Day. A story of love lost and lives renewed, and of forgiveness.
I think as a stand alone book, this was a great story. When compared to Jane Austen (my hero) it is a close second. The author was able to convey similar themes and ideas. Jane Austen would have been proud to have been such an influence.
Anne and Neil were great characters. Well rounded and full of life. Anne's dysfunctional family drove me crazy- but they were true to life characters.
If you are a fan of Jane Austen you will like this story.
