Who are you?

I am Anne Elliot!

As much as I adore all of the Austen classics, "Persuasion" has got to be my favorite Jane Austen book. If you haven't read it, do! Anne is persuaded by a rich friend not to have a relationship with the man that she loves and so she loses him. She has to deal with this loss for seven years time and then he comes back into her life and she gets a second chance to make things right. It's an excellent read. I'm glad I turned out to be Miss Elliot in the Austenquiz.

The movie is one of my all-time favorites. And Anne Elliot, one of my all-time favorite characters.

Hey Sarah- thanks for the recommendation! I bought this book so I would have something to read on the plane when we went to Ohio, and I just finished it this afternoon. Now I need to watch the movie! I'm going to start reading Sense and Sensibility soon... have you read that one before? (Can you tell found a "Classics" sale at Barnes & Noble?)
