in consequence of the missive, I don't think that time is fleeting for Isabella, penned by Graciela
Isabella IS still very young, but I think in Jane Austen's time, women tended to marry younger, certainly younger than many women do now -- not Anne Elliot of course who was twenty-seven. However I do think Isabella feels pressure to find herself a husband partly because of her economic situation. By contrast Emma Woodhouse wasn't in a hurry to marry, but she was well off financially. She had no need to marry.
