In this unique take on Jane Austen's Persuasion, Amanda Grange looks at love and loss through the eyes of Captain Wentworth.

But while attending a private ball, he meets the graceful and intelligent Miss Anne Elliot -- and his heart is lost.

  • Ce
This novel is Amanda Grange's attempt to fill in some of the blanks left for the reader of the Jane Austen novel Persuasion. It gives us the perspective of the happenings in that novel from Captain Frederick Wentworth's point of view.

I enjoyed reading this book. I did not realize that the first 117 pages would all be this authors imaginings of the meeting and then gentle courtship between Anne Elliot and Frederick Wentworth. We are given much detail of the meetings between these two characters and are allowed to see how their admiration for each other turns to love. Commander Wentworth (his rank at that point in the story) was understandably stunned when Anne Elliot told him that she could not accept his offer of marriage after all. He reacted in a completely normal way, he was hurt, surprised, and very angry. So angry that he immediately left the area determined never to think about her again.

The story picks up eight years later. I am glad that the author did not give us any details of what happened to Wentworth (now having the rank of Captain) during the time of his battling the French in the war with Napoleon. Instead, we see what he was doing during these years through reminiscences with Harville and Benwick. When Frederick goes back into Somersetshire he feels Anne has lost her youth, her beauty and her bloom. Yet after only a short time of being around her he finds himself wondering if he has actually managed to erase all tender feelings for her after all.

I have now read three of these 'interpretations' of Jane Austen novels as written by Amanda Grange. Of Mr. Darcy's Diary, Mr. Knightley's Diary, and Captain Wentworth's Diary, I can definitely say that I enjoyed Mr. Darcy's Diary the most. After that would have to come Captain Wentworth's Diary. I thought Ms Grange managed to write about the time when Anne and Frederick were meeting and falling in love very well. She made me see Frederick as a caring, concerned, loving suitor for Anne. As always, Ms Grange followed the original novel very closely except in places where there was no information given in the original. I enjoyed this book and can say that I think Jane Austen fans who are not quite so determined in having an author follow the exact example set down by Miss Austen will be able to enjoy this book. Anyone expecting to read an exact extension in wording and thoughts of the Austen works will not be quite so satisfied.

I loved the idea of this book though I'm not usually drawn to work in the fan-fiction category. The story was fairly true to events with little deviations from actual story-line. What earned this title a three star was the language used, which was not consistent with Austen's. Considering the genre of writing I am, perhaps, being too severe on the work because despite the language, the story was well crafted. I enjoyed reading Captain Wentworth's thoughts and feelings and was particularly struck by the story development during his time in Shropshire. Austen's work makes allusions to Wentworth's honor in having Louisa Musgrove should she have considered herself engaged to him but Grange's development represented such a strong struggle between honor and love that I truly felt for Captain Wentworth; even knowing he gets Anne in the end. I would have gladly given the work a five star rating if the language used was consistent with Austen's style. Unfortunately, that was a big deterrent but though it was, it will not stop me from reading Darcy's diary.

Persuasion is one of my all time favorite Jane Austen novels. Therefore I decided to read this diary based on the hero Captain Frederick Wentworth. It gives more of a back story on Captain Wentworth when he first meets Anne Elliot when he was Commander Wentworth and goes through his acquaintance with her and how their relationship developed over a short time to his dissapointment then skips to when his fate is about to collide with hers again years later. The book is well written and though its from Captain Wentworth's perspective the author stays true to the characters that Jane Austen developed. I have also read other "diaries" from this author including Fitzwilliam Darcy's and Colonel Brandon's. I enjoy Amanda Grange's writing style.

I enjoyed this quick read into the mind of Captain Wentworth. It was nice to read from his point of view.

No, it doesn't use the same dialect as Jane Austen books but is sufficed. There were a few edits that need corrected, like using the word if in place of I, but that was only a few.
  • DEAD-SHOT
If you are a fan of Jane Austen and Persuasion (Oxford World's Classics) I am sure you have wondered about how Captain Wentworth and Anne met, how they fell in love, what happened eight years ago and how does what happened eight years ago affect them later on. I have read Persuasion by Jane Austen and I admire it very much, but I have always felt unsatisfied not knowing how the story began. Of course we may never know what Jane Austen had in mind for Wentworth and Anne, but Amanda Grange makes a bold attempt at how the first meeting between the two went.

This is my third book by Amanda Grange and by far my favorite. I like this book the most because it gives such new insight into the character of Captain Wentworth. The story starts in the year 1806 just before he meets Anne for the first time. This was a pleasant surprise because I was expecting it to start like "Persuasion" did with Kellynch hall being rented by the Croft's. The first 100 or so pages were like a "prequel" to "Persuasion."

My favorite thing about this book is how well we got to know Captain Wentworth, we got to see other sides of him. In "Persuasion" he is mostly angry, proud, resentful. Now we see his character develop. We see more history, depth, passion. He is a more well-rounded character.

Of course the writing is not in the style of Jane Austen, Captain Wentworth is our narrator, and I don't think anyone will argue with me when I say he does not have Jane Austen's wit and language! The author does a great job portraying Wentworth's thoughts and feelings and the story (when it resumes in the year 1814) follows very closely the timing and events taking place in Jane Austen's "Persuasion."

I highly recommend this to any Jane Austen, "Persuasion," or Captain Wentworth fan!
