In this episode, Rachel leads Sarah, Erin, and Bri in a recap discussion of the latest Lutheran Ladies’ Book Club selection: Jane Austen’s Persuasion.
What’s the deal with rank and social status in Regency England? What makes Anne Elliot such a likeable heroine? Is Lutheran-lady-lookalike Lady Russell more of a hero or a villain? Which big ideas, life lessons, and insights into the human condition are lurking beneath the surface of this deceptively simple “romance novel”?
At the end of the episode, the Ladies announce their next book club read—shamelessly cherry picked from a recent interview with fellow Lutheran lady Katie Schuermann. What will it be? Listen to the end to find out!
