Bringing Jane Austen to the 21st Century
Kaitlin Saunders: A Modern Day Persuasion

Elementary, my dear Watson!

Posted by Kaitlin Saunders in Blog on February 9, 2011

Welcome back ladies and gents!

I find myself feeling very English today–perhaps it’s because I’ve been thinking of my uncle and sister-in-law who are both planning trips abroad this year. Alas, I am envious (although already having traveled to England with my ‘mum’ now almost two years ago), but I think I’ve found just the cure. Ah-hem…another drumroll please…

Although my first recommendation would of course be my forthcoming novel, “A Modern Day Persuasion”, to be released in March, I don’t expect us 21st century beings to be satisfied with “wait” in a world that screams “now!” Therefore, there is a close second to tide you over in the meantime.

I challenge each of you to pick up a copy of the movie adaptation Persuasion starring Amanda Root and Ciaran Hinds, and immerse yourself in the classic tale. In my opinion, this is the most closely-crafted production of Jane Austen’s novel based in its original time period. Pop some popcorn or grab a bag of chocolates and curl up on the couch to this beloved story brought to life. Introduce (or reintroduce) yourself to Persuasion’s story and its memorable characters–do your home-work before reading my novel soon to be released! But most of all, have fun.

Cheers! :)
Until next time, friends,
