About this product
- DescriptionJane Austen's Persuasion has the reader rooting for the protagonists to rekindle their estranged affections. But what of the vel's nemeses? In the end, the wily and impious Mr. Elliot casts aside his carefully groomed reputation and persuades the infamous Mrs. Clay to become his mistress. But every persuader needs a persuadable partner, and Mrs. Clay is ingenue; she'd send a Willoughby or a Wickham packing. Though less calculating than those romantic villains, Penelope Clay and William Elliot discover in each other the kind of kindred spirits they fail to find among the titled Elliots. While highlighting and transfiguring classic scenes from the vel, this unconventional new version provides a romantic pairing on a par with that of Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth. In the process, Persuadable illustrates an eternal Austen truth: love is wholly individual, matter the age or time-period. Who says a couple of shameless gold diggers can't find true love?
