in consequence of the missive, Ch 3: Cool air for her flushed cheeks, penned by Joan Ellen
Reading Persuasion very carefully and reading all the quotes in posts really makes me realize the importance of every sentence in Jane Austen's work. The hints of things here and there that bring out important things, like Anne's flushed cheeks. I've been reading the essay 'Love and Marriage' by Juliet McMaster in "The Jane Austen Companion" and Charlotte Bronte is quoted as saying "The Passions are perfectly unknown to her." and yet the careful reader can see that her novels are full of passions. At least our suspense about the 'he' who flushed Anne's cheeks ends at the start of Chapter 4, but we realize that the relationship must have been very passionate to cause flushed cheeks after 8 years.
