An absolute treat for any Jane Austen fan! Kelly Miller’s retelling of Persuasion opened my eyes to the story from Captain Wentworth’s perspective and gave me a new appreciation for him. The narrative is beautifully told in a style that conveys the language and period of the Regency era. I loved that Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice had a featured role in the story. The plot starts out much the same as Austen’s novel, but a clever twist of fate sends the story in an unexpected direction. I was not expecting the plot complication that occurs in the final act, but it made for an exciting climax. If you love second-chance romance and seeing more of your favorite Persuasion characters, then give Captive Hearts a try!
