Will you be persuaded to read this book?

Do we move on from past romances? Do we want to? What happens if we are given a second chance? Do we take it? In By the Book, we watch as Anne reconnects with her college boyfriend. Is he “the one” or is Rick, the rich, successful novelist? In this retelling of Austen’s Persuasion, we root for Anne as she explores her choices. The academic setting is fun. There are also subplots, involving Anne’s close friend, Larry, and Anne’s father so that the book is about different kinds of relationships.. The novel is an easy read and one that will be enjoyed by fans ofmodern day Jane Austen tales.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
