Publisher's Summary

As the Napoleonic Wars come to an end in 1814, admirals and captains of the Royal Navy are put ashore, their work done. Anne Elliot meets Captain Frederick Wentworth after seven years, by the chance of his sister and brother-in-law renting her father's estate, while she stays for a few months with her married sister, living nearby. They fell in love the first time, but she broke off the engagement.

Jane Austen's Persuasion read by Elizabeth Klett

I love the way Ms Klett brings to life the characters. Her voice perfectly conveys to us the irony of Austen's narrative and the character's individual personalities are distinct and easy to follow.

I recommend this reading of Persuasion to my fellow Austen lovers!

I have been a fan of Jane Austen since high school, and Persuasion has been a book I've read repeated. I'm also a fan of Elizabeth Klett, whom I first discovered while using Librivox, a website dedicated to free read-aloud renditions of books no longer under copyright. I have downloaded numerous Elizabeth Klett narrated audiobooks via Librivox for several years, and I've listened to them while driving to Louisiana from Texas and vice versa. My experience with Persuasion was no different, I listened to it in the school pick-up line, while jogging, at night before bed, and whenever I found myself with a free mental moment to finish devouring this story. I could not stop listening.

Elizabeth is a compelling reader, she highlighted the story in ways that I had missed in my previous readings. The characters came to life, each with their own eccentricities, and at long last, mature, unwavering love and patience was well-rewarded. Being married now for 17 years, these are sentiments I cannot help but appreciate.

When Elizabeth offered this book on her Facebook fan page, I jumped at the opportunity to listen and leave a review. I was not disappointed, and you won't be either.
