One horrible misunderstanding. Two heartbroken people.
For seven long years, Anne Elliot of Kellynch Station quietly mourned the loss of her first love. Now that she’s finally over Fred for good, her sister offers the perfect escape: Uppercross.
This move, from one cattle station to another, offers new friends, new responsibilities, and now that she’s out from under her father’s domineering thumb, a whole new world of possibilities.
The sky is the limit.
Or maybe the sky is the perfect place for helicopter mustering pilot Fred Wentworth to spend his days. It took a while for him to regroup after their breakup, but now he’s back, he’s successful, and he’s put the past so far behind him he doesn’t even think about Anne more than a couple dozen times a day.
Life is good.
Or it was until he quite literally runs into the one person he hoped to never see again. After that, what’s a bloke to do other than rethink every lie he’d convinced himself was the truth?
Although they both seem willing to admit they were wrong all those years ago, when things take a bad turn, Anne is left to wonder… Is it too late for a reconciliation?
Persuade Me: Austen’s Persuasion meets the rugged Australian bush—plus dingoes.
My thoughts: Persuasion is one of my most favorite classics, since I enjoy the tale of two people who are separated by misunderstandings who are given a second chance at love years later. I enjoyed how this story took the classic and made it modern, as well as set it in Australia. The book is a clever, fun re-telling of the classic that I enjoyed whole heartedly! I look forward to reading the other books in this series as they come out!
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review.

I'm looking forward to reading this book! I had to chuckle at the author's quandry about wording. Being an American who has lived in New Zealand for 12 years now, I have the same problem.ReplyDelete
