in consequence of the missive, Lady Russell: From Anne's Point of View (Sorry, long), penned by BarbaraB
Lady Russell's prejudice and her disconnect with Anne's feelings: These are two very good points IMO, and well argued, if I may say so. I have nothing to add to your post, which is not a bit too long for me.
I have never really warmed to Lady Russell, but during the last 'Persuasion' GR I did come to appreciate that her concerns in 1806 about the financial imprudence of the engagement were perfectly justified.
BarbaraB - If you have time to post again on the subject of lady Russell I for one will be lapping it up. It is encouraging to know that I'm not the only one to see the negative aspects of LR and her influence over Anne.
