A Different Persuasion: Part 3 — 11 Comments

  1. Hmm, I’m not sure it’s such a good idea for Anne to take the Elliots out in her tippy landaulette! I’m delighted you’re continuing this tale and allowing us to revisit the characters of Persuasion. I am confused, though, as to how Anne’s possible son might be heir to Kellynch, but not Mary Musgrove’s sons, who are, I suppose, yet conceived in this timeline – my brain is muddled by a timeline where Anne is married but Mary is not!

    • Well, Abigail, it’s true I’m on thin legal ground about whether Anne’s son might be heir over Mr. Elliot, but Mary definitely isn’t married yet! Remember in Sir Walter’s book of books, he has noted down the date of Mary’s marriage, and it’s not until December 1810!

  2. I’m with Carole here. I think Elliot’s appearance and interest in Anne is extremely suspicious. I do love the story though. Persuasion is my favourite Austen novel!

    • I love Persuasion too, Taswmom, and I think it doesn’t get enough appreciation in the Austenesque world!

  3. I am so enjoying this variation of Persuasion. But I am a little nervous about the new Mrs. Eliot; she seems quite determined to make trouble of one sort or another.

    Thanks for this wonderful chapter, and I can’t wait to read more!!

  4. Oh, there will be trouble, Susanne! But it’s fun to follow the Wentworths in the early days of their (1808 instead of 1814) marriage.
