Oh, Captain Wentworth

by Charlotte Reads Classics

Persuasion, Jane Austen

Sometimes over my morning coffee, I want to read a happy ending. I love Persuasion because it isn’t as formulaic as you’d expect. The novel is all about two people coming back to love again after being separated, so there is sadness and regret as well as the love story. I like Captain Wentworth because despite being the typically proud Austen man he is constantly devoted to Anne. So he still makes the heart flutter.
