Persuasion

Persuasion
Jane Austen
romance
4 stars

27 year old middle daugher turned down a first love at 19 due to friends advice. Always regretted. Man comes back and makes a play again. Successful.

Not necessarily Austen’s most engaging, but my favorite none the less.

Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice

romance
4 stars

5 sisters. The eldest meets and falls in love with Englands richest, most eligible bachelor. The next sister, Elizabeth, ends up falling for his friend, Mr Darcy. The next 3 sisters play much smaller parts. Mr Darcy has pride, Elizabeth has prejudice. I enjoyed this better than S&S.
