in consequence of the missive, Jane almost too good to be true, penned by LouAnn
From a storyteller's standpoint, Jane makes a good character foil for Lizzie, who prides herself on being able to make quick, accurate judgments.
I think the reason Jane doesn't disgust readers is because we have Lizzie's slightly cynical viewpoint as well. If Jane were the main character, we might get a bit annoyed with her constant niceness. (Or throw the book down in exasperation, as I did with Pamela...)
