One horrible misunderstanding. Two heartbroken people.
For seven long years, Anne Elliot of Kellynch Station quietly mourned the loss of her first love. Now that she’s finally over Fred for good, her sister offers the perfect escape: Uppercross.
This move, from one cattle station to another, offers new friends, new responsibilities, and now that she’s out from under her father’s domineering thumb, a whole new world of possibilities.
The sky is the limit.
Or maybe the sky is the perfect place for helicopter mustering pilot Fred Wentworth to spend his days. It took a while for him to regroup after their breakup, but now he’s back, he’s successful, and he’s put the past so far behind him he doesn’t even think about Anne more than a couple dozen times a day.
Life is good.
Or it was until he quite literally runs into the one person he hoped to never see again. After that, what’s a bloke to do other than rethink every lie he’d convinced himself was the truth?
Although they both seem willing to admit they were wrong all those years ago, when things take a bad turn, Anne is left to wonder… Is it too late for a reconciliation?
Persuade Me: Austen’s Persuasion meets the rugged Australian bush—plus dingoes.

More from Joanne
Persuade Me is written by Joanne Markey. This is the first book that I have read by this author. This book takes place at an Australian cattle station. Which is not a setting that I am familiar with. This is a modern day retelling of Persuasion. This follows Anne who took a long time to get over her first love. Her journey is heartfelt and the author wrote the story full of emotion. It was personal, moving and tugged at my heart strings.
Anne and Fred run into each other again and it is not a pleasant meeting. However, this is a story of second chances and seeing how relationships are damaged if we believe a lie to be true. Can they trust each other again? Or has to much damage been done.
I really enjoyed the author's writing style. It flowed nicely and I felt the descriptions displayed the settings perfectly. I love books when I can close my eyes and envision everything that I am reading.
The characters are well written - the storyline intriguing. It's been a long time since I have read anything along the lines of Jane Austen. Thank you to the author, publisher and Celebrate Lit for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
