Persuasion - Jane Austen - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Persuasion:

Another go with the one that got away.

My favorite Jane Austen quote from the book:

"How quick come the reasons for approving what we like."

Questions I pondered while reading Persuasion:

Should social status dictate marriage?

Is following anyone, including mentors, blindly a good idea?

My Thoughts about Persuasion:

I am a romantic.

I love do-overs.

I love happy endings.
