Persuasion, published in 1818, is Jane Austen's last completed novel. In it she renders the most minute details of her cast, the English upper-middle-class of the early 19th century. Anne Elliot is the heroine of the story - for years she has suffered from the decision to break it off with a man she loved dearly. Austen details the cause and effect of her breakup, analyzing the British class system and its adherents. Persuasion might be Austen's most romantic, prominently featuring offset but undying love. In this way too, Persuasion is like a fairy tale. The handsome Wentworth who prefers the affection of the other girls; the tension between Anne and he building up gradually. Finally it builds into a flurry of romantic awesomeness that I won't spoil. For its charm and romance, the reality of the book wasn't all too rosy. Austen, the queen of English letters, unfortunately didn't see this work published. She would die just before it came out at the tender age of 41.
