When Jane Austen died in 1817, she left behind 120 pages of manuscript that would eventually be published as Sanditon. Praised by some critics and condemned by others, this final effort by the great English writer has for the most part been overlooked in favor of the novels that were published during her lifetime and shortly after her death. For the first time, an entire book is devoted to examining this fragment to establish it as Jane Austen's potential masterpiece. With a new setting and a greater range of characters than found in earlier works, this novel composed during the last months of her short life, if completed, would at the same time have continued her series of magnificent novels and created new possibilities for novels to come.

Jane Austen’s last completed novel, Persuasion is a delightful social satire of England’s landed gentry and a moving tale of lovers separated by class distinctions. After years apart, unmarried Anne Elliot, the heroine Jane Austen called “almost too good for me,” encounters the dashing naval officer others persuaded her to reject, as he now courts the rash and younger Louisa Musgrove. Superbly drawn, these characters and those of Anne’s prideful father, Sir Walter, the scheming Mrs. Clay, and the duplicitous William Elliot, heir to Kellynch Hall, become luminously alive—so much so that the poet Tennyson, visiting historic Lyme Regis, where a pivotal scene occurs, exclaimed: “Don’t talk to me of the Duke of Monmouth. Show me the exact spot where Louisa Musgrove fell!” Tender, almost grave, Persuasion offers a glimpse into Jane Austen’s own heart while it magnificently displays the full maturity of her literary power.
