Once Persuaded, Twice Shy
Once Persuaded, Twice Shy: A Modern Reimagining of Persuasion | Melodie Edwards
2 posts | 3 to read
This modern reimagining of Persuasion is full of witty banter, romantic angst, and compelling characters as it captures the heart of the classic Jane Austen novel. When Anne Elliott broke up with Ben Wentworth it seemed like the right thing to do . . . but now, eight years later, shes not so sure. In her scenic hometown of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Anne is comfortable focusing on her successful career, filling her late mothers shoes as town councilor and executive director of her theater company. She certainly keeps busy as the all-around wrangler of eccentric locals, self-centered family members, elaborate festivals, and the occasional goose attack. But the more she tries to convince herself that her life is fine as-is, the more it all feels like a showand not nearly as good as the ones put on by her theater company. Shes the always responsible Anne, always taken for granted and cleaning up after other people, and the memories of happier times with Ben Wentworth still haunt her. So when the nearby Kellynch Winery is bought by Bens aunt and uncle, Annes life is set ablaze as her old flame crashes back into her lifeand its clear he hasnt forgotten or forgiven her for breaking his heart. A joint project between the winery and Annes theater forces both Ben and Anne to confront their complicated history, and as they spend more time together Anne cant help but wonder if there might be hope for their future after all.
