This new edition of one of Jane Austen's masterpieces, Persuasion, includes entries of Captain Wentworth's personal journal (recently discovered in the trunk of his great great great great great &etc. granddaughter).

Captain Wentworth

a lonely soul...

sailing the vast ocean...

pining for his beloved Anne...

the sirens call...

Who can resist these seductresses who lure nearby sailors
with their enchanting music and voices
to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island?

Read about Captain Wentworth's battle

and how he escapes from the sirens clutches

and eventually returns to his true love

with the help of merfolk.
