I need to clarify. I believe it is perfectly reasonable for a 10 year old to react as Fanny did during her introduction to MP and its inhabitants. What I find a little hard to accept, is that eight years later she still is acting like a scared ninny.
However, we are only into the first eight chapters. As Jeffrey pointed out, we must have patience. JA is too skilled a writer to leave her readers with a spineless heroine. My point early on, and we have agreed to discuss it at the end of the novel, is perhaps MP would have started out as a more enjoyable read if Fanny would have evolved more over that eight year period and shown perhaps a little of the rebellion one would expect in an 18 year old woman.
