in consequence of the missive, Refer to Gianni's post: Anne could use a wake-up call herself!, penned by jeffrey
There were posts last week about Anne being perfect, or close to it. I never thought she was, and I think that is very evident in this week's chapters.
Anne's principal fault is a severe lack of self-esteem. Despite her "elegance of mind and sweetness of character" she does not believe that she deserves attention or affection. So, when Wentworth comes around, she ignores and avoids him. She resigns herself to duty at the piano instead of joining the dancing. Even when she IS tired, she doesn't accept the Croft's initial offer of a carriage ride.
Yes, I think Anne also deserves a slap upside the head. She's got more talent, more perceptiveness, and more people skills than virtually anyone else in her sphere, and she gives herself no credit.
