The Power of Persuasion
by Shelagh Watkins
Is Jane Austen your favourite author? She is Beth Durban's. When a journalist writes disparaging remarks about film adaptations of Austen's novels, Beth retaliates. She writes to the newspaper and receives an unexpected visit from the newspaper's critic, F. William D'Arcy. At first, she is bemused, but after several sightings of the inquisitive journalist, she’s neither pleased nor amused.
