MMM: Inspired by Persuasion

Hi, folks!  Hope your month is started out nicely and that you're happy and healthy!  What a blessing if that was the case for all of us, right?  Anyway, we've got another new challenge for you over at Make My Monday and guess what?  I'm the hostess!!!  I'd like you to be inspired by a book/book cover.  I've chosen "Persuasion" by Jane Austen!!!

Here's the book cover~

A little bit about the book~

This classic was written in the early nineteenth century by Jane Austen.  The main character is Anne Elliot.  Anne has previously been wealthy, but her father and sister have wasted their fortune after her mother passed away.  She has also previously found true love.  She rejected it because the man was a lowly and poor sailor and Anne was counseled by a trusted mother figure not to marry him.  BUT, he's BACK and has made a fortune in the war against Napoleon.  Now her family thinks him a sort of catch--she's the only genuine person in a group of snobs.  She knows she made a mistake and has faithfully loved him the past 8 years.  But now she's a "spinster" at the old age of 27.  Will she and Captain Wentworth finally be able to be together?  I won't tell.  You'll have to read it! ;)
