How uncomfortable this must have been for Anne, to have everyone pouncing on her, wanting her to "persuade" others, for a change. I think P2 caught this moment in the book perfectly. ;-)
Contrast this with Kellynch, where she was ignored and no one talks to anyone. At Uppercross, everyone talks, and talks to Anne about everything, poor dear, and usually having to do with Mary. Anne, "whose word had no weight," is suddenly thought to have much influence over Mary, and she does, to a degree, but not what others might wish!
But to go from a place of almost sensory depravation, to the almost overwhelming noise and chatter, must initially be a shock to the system. But we read that "Her own spirits improved by change of place and subject, by being removed three miles from Kellynch." Yes - wouldn't that cheer up all of us! ;-)
