Bestselling author Debra White Smith’s popular Austen series has a new addition—a contemporary story based on Jane Austen’s Persuasion.
Allie Ellen is the daughter of a respected, wealthy southern family who owns a plantation. Frederick Wently has no money and plans to join the Air Force. When the two meet, they feel a deep attraction. But Allie’s unsentimental aunt dissuades her from the relationship—so when Frederick proposes, Allie runs off.
Years later, Allie and Frederick find themselves in the same city once again. But other love interests and Frederick’s bitterness from their earlier break up may keep them apart. Will forgiveness and hope erase the memories of the past in time for Allie and Frederick to have a future?
