From the Paper:

"Persuasion is a very hard thing to understand but one book does a great job on making it easier to understand. The book is "A Year of Wonders." Written by Geraldine Brooks, this book is about a village during the Black Plague. In the sixth chapter, it tells of a rector (priest) who needs to convince the people of the village to stay and keep the Plague contained in the village. It also serves as a great example of persuasion. The Rector is referred to as Mr. Mompellion, and throughout it, he gives great examples of persuasion styles. Mr. Mompellion was very persuasive with his argument. He used great styles of persuasion in his sermon. He brought God into it and he related the situation to people. But the best thing he did was offer comfort and aid to everybody in the village."
