About the Book
When Anne broke off her engagement eight years ago, she thought she'd never see Neil Wentworth again. But when Neil's brother buys the house she grew up in, it seems fate has other plans in store, and Anne is woefully unprepared for the roller coaster of emotions that accompanies Neil's return.
About the Author
Rebecca H. Jamison has lived on a live volcano, excavated the bones of a prehistoric mammal, and won first prize at a rigged chili cook-off. She wrote novels just for fun until she made a New Year’s resolution in 2011 to submit a manuscript to publishers. Her published works are Persuasion: A Latter-day Tale, Emma: A Latter-day Tale, and Sense and Sensibility: A Latter-day Tale.
Rebecca grew up in Virginia. She attended Brigham Young University, where she earned a BA and MA in English. In between college and graduate school, she served a mission to Portugal and the Cape Verde islands. Her job titles have included special education teacher’s aide, technical writer, English teacher, and stay-at-home mom.
Rebecca enjoys running, dancing, reading, and watching detective shows. She also likes to chat with teenagers. Summer is her favorite season of the year because she can eat watermelon and hang at the pool. Rebecca and her husband have five boys, so she knows how to pronounce a lot of dinosaur names and how to clean up Legos. They also have one wonderful daughter.
Persuasion: a latter-day tale by Rebecca H. Jamison is a cute and sweet rendition with a twist of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. This story is of a young women, Anne, who broke off her engagement with Neil Wentworth, the man of her dreams. Anne fully expects never to see Neil ever again, but eight years later, he unexpectedly reappears in her life. Soon after Neil comes back into Anne’s life, she starts dating another nice young man, Will. But as nice as Will is, Anne cannot get Neil out of her head. So Anne must make a choice, be with Will, or let him go for a change with Neil. A delightful modern-day retelling, this story is one that readers will thoroughly enjoy. Filled with delightful Austenish characters and of course romance, I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy Jane Austen novels with a twist.
