Book 16 - Persuasion
My sixteenth book was Persuasion by Jane Austen. I have now read all of Jane Austen's books! This one was pretty good. It was her last book. The book is about Anne Elliot, who was in love with a man named Fredrick Wentworth, who her family felt was below them. So, she turned him down. Now, she's 27 years old and still unmarried. She meets up with Wentworth, who is now Captain Wentworth, who has a large fortune now. She's still in love with him, but he seems to be indifferent to her. She also has to deal with her vain father and sister, her stuck up married younger sister and her extended family, and her conniving cousin William Elliot.
