in consequence of the missive, Claire Tomalin's "JA: A Life", penned by Line
Or to Edward who though materially rich lost a wife( a beloved one too) in childbirth.He did not remarry,did he?
James also lost a wife who was much loved.And he never gained the hand of Eliza....
I'm sorry,Line but for me this is just one of Tomalins sweeping statments that makes my teeth go slighlty on edge.
Merely because one is materially impoverished compared to the rest of one's family does not automatically equate, for me at least with being classed as "unlucky".
