“Do not be in a hurry, the right man will come at last.” ~ Jane Austen 
From the moment she first saw him, Mary King was attracted to George Wickham. He was good-looking and charming, and he seemed to her like the perfect gentleman. She longed for him to notice her, but he never seemed to even see her. Things change, though, when Mary suddenly inherits a fortune of ten thousand pounds. Suddenly George is interested in her, but is he really after her money? In this engaging coming-of-age story, Mary will have to learn whether to trust her heart or her head. 
What listeners have said about Almost Persuaded 
"Miss King is an underappreciated minor character in Miss Austen’s book, but here in P.O.Dixon’s story, it is she who is the lead." 
"I really liked this tale. Mary is very sweet and naïve, and Wickham is as dastardly and exploitative as we all expect him to be. The narration, as with all of Pam Dixon's works, was excellently done as usual by the lovely Pearl Hewitt." 
"Fun to listen to a side story play out."
