    I followed the blog tour for this book and then in looking at my Wish List on and realizing this book was available through Kindle Unlimited I borrowed it, not waiting to see if I won it from the raffles on those blogs: I am so glad I went ahead and did so. This book has me on the verge of tears and wanting to motivate others to also read this.Persuasion is my second favorite Jane Austen book. I adore the "Half Agony/Half Hope" letter in canon and wondered how or even if another author could co [...]

    Austen's Persuasion translated into the 21st century quite easily with a good old-fashioned second chance romance full of the usual miscues, sizzling glances across the room, and lots of regret and bittersweet memories of the past all set against the world of book publishing. Each time I get my hands on a modern retelling, I think what hooks me in initially is my overwhelming curiosity of how the author will describe the characters and what will be the setting. The book publishing industry was a [...]

    Modern Persuasion by Sara Marks takes Jane Austen’s Persuasion into the present day. Emma Shaw (Anne Elliot) is an editor at the publishing house run by family friend Karen Russell, who is grooming Emma to take over the imprint run by her father, Walter Shaw. Somehow Emma manages to sort out her father’s and sister Elizabeth’s financial troubles, cater to her needy sister Mary, and get everything in order for PubCon. She’s hit hard by the appearance of Frederick Wentworth, who is there t [...]

    I have never read any Austen other than Pride and Prejudice, but this chick lit retelling of Persuasion was easy to get into despite never having read the original. I liked the setting in the publishing world and enjoyed Emma's character and having her thrust back into traveling on a book tour with Frederick, whose proposal she rejected 8 years before after being persuaded by her family and mother-figure Karen. As far as the audiobook goes, the narration was great for Emma and Frederick, but som [...]

    I have read this at least 3 times not including the time I wrote it. My review is probably biased

  • Gail Herman

    I'm a confirmed Janeite and a member of JASNA! This author know Jane's Persuasion very well. She used her knowledge of the original novel to create this modern rendition! A delightful book to read!I'm not always enamored with retellings of Austen's work but this book is an exception! The author subtly included key storylines from Austen to her modern story with clever twists. It wasn't at all awkward or ridiculous. Rather, the new novel was most enjoyable and fun to read especially if one is bot [...]

    Loved this retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion. The characters are re-worked well into the modern day American culture.The setting was especially fun as it is in the world of publishing with behind-the-scenes book tour and author event details as well as romance shenanigans thrown in.It was amusing to read the description of experiences at the fictional publishing convention, PubCon. Anyone who has attended BEA can relate. The romance pacing was similarly and properly drawn out.

  • Melanie Stanford

    Read this book in one sitting. I loved how the author dropped Persuasion into the modern world of book publishing! So cool. While I think there are some things that could use a bit of work, the book was a fun and enjoyable read, and great for fans of Jane Austen's Persuasion.

  • Cynthia

    This is such a sad story of lost love to a second chance. Years ago Emma chose her career and family over love for many different reasons. Now she comes face to face with her past love that has a book and movie out. This book she did the editing years ago she knows this story by heart and the changes she knows are about her. Spending time with him she isn’t sure she made the right choice. As they get to know each other again, working through their past dealing with the anger and the people tod [...]

    For the most this was an enjoyable read, but there were some moments of pacing that just didn't work for me. I enjoyed the ways in which the characters grappled with their emotions, each other and the situation. I was not a fan of the way everyone in Fredrick's life loved her - it just felt forced. I am a fan of the use of messaging within the novel.His half in agony, half in hope "letter" had some rare moments of insight into Fredrick's perspectives of some moments, but ultimately it felt like [...]

  • Sande Riggs

    This is Sara's first novel. It is a modernization of Jane Austen's last novel Persuasion. All the characters are there - The Musgroves, Emma, Frederick, and more. It is a wonderful adaptation to fit a modern world. Emma is an Editor and Frederick is a screenwriter. His first novel has been released and Emma is thrown into conducting the book tour. Emma spends much of the story in conflict with herself over a decision to pursue her career over marriage to Frederick right after college. As Austen [...]

  • Joan Mitchell

    Enjoyable story of how a couple decide to go different ways and after eight years meet again and try to resolve emotion s left over from their break up. The characters and settings are believable but not mundane. I recommend this book to those who like light romance. I received this book from for free.

  • Marivi Sanz

    I read this book in one sitting once I started it. I give it 4 stars because I love anything inspired in "Persuasion", and because I liked the modernisation. I should probably take half a star away because of some poor editing and a few mistakes that distracted my attention from the story and made me have to check back what I had already read, but in the end, this was a nice book.

  • Jane

    I thoroughly enjoyed this modern re telling of Jane Austen's Persuasion. The modern characters came alive under the skilled crafting of author Sara Marks, and I found it hard to put the book down. Now I can't wait for the author's next novel.
