text ¹ Modern Persuasion Ñ Sara Marks

This story of second chances is inspired by Jane Austen’s PersuasionEight years ago Emma Shaw picked her career and family over Fredrick Wentworth the man she loved Since then she has built a career as a book editor and spends her free time making sure her father and sisters are t Austen's Persuasion translated into the 21st century uite 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 an interesting choice here and one not entirely unfamiliar especially when they were out on the book tour Emma aka Anne is an accomplished editor and has all the makings of a brilliant publisher if her boss would only loosen up on the reins and let her follow her head She has the gift of picking bestsellers and making an author golden Her parents were industry legends though her dad is not doing well since his wife's death And neither is Emma really as she is content to tread water indefinitelyOn the flip side there is Fredrick the guy Emma walked away from when he wanted her to follow him to LA and live a life together He went on to screenwrite a popular movie and now is a bestselling author on a book tour through Emma's publishing house Oh my that reunion meet cute was as cringe worthy as you imagine and the awkward tour was a test in fortitude for both Freddy and EmmaOverall I thought this was a great tribute to the original story while also proving it was a solid original piece of its own It has Persuasion nuances but it didn't take long for me to realize that Emma is no self effacing Anne who is loaded down with regret all around Emma has one regret but also has lots of non regrets too She followed her dreams and is good at what she does with uite a bit of respect and admiration in the world she inhabits Fredrick might be the Hollywood writer but really it is Emma who is the success story here that everyone in the book industry is buzzing about I say that because this is the dynamic that is the domino effect changing things all the way throughThis is a romance but it is also very much a women's fiction This is Emma's story of what she does when she gets the chance at a reset She is confronted with her past in a visceral way and spends a great deal of time pondering if she made the right decision back when she was twenty two and fresh out of college if the past should be left in the past or as many are hinting is this a new opportunity eight years later because she is in a different place in her life as is Fredrick and what does it matter if he still hates herI think this put together Anne figure will appeal to people Those who adore Persuasion and don't mind it set in modern day will read it and have a good time but I think this is also for those who might not have liked the meeker Anne of Austen's novel but would enjoy her 20 version in Emma And drunk Emma is really uite the woman to be reckoned with let me tell youSo yes I was well pleased with Modern Persuasion and feel it has strong appeal for contemporary romance and women's fiction fans alike whether or not the reader has read or watched a tv adaption of Austen's Persuasion or notMy thanks to Lola's Blog Tours and the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review

I understand why she didn't name her Anne Elliott However since Emma is the main character and title of another Austen novel it would seem that another name could have been chosen for this character Thanks for writing this book I look forward to reading your next novelGail H
