In Chapter 56 Lady C talks about the engagement of Anne De Bourgh to Darcy: "The engagement between them is of a peculiar kind. From their infancy they have been intended for each other. It was the favourite wish of his mother, as well as of hers. While in their cradles, we planned the union."
Do you really think this is true? I'd like to think better of Lady Anne. I'd like to think she knew her sister for what she was and would never wish to shackle her own son to such a mother-in-law. I imagine that Lady C. has convinced herself that Lady Anne wished it but I can't imagine it to be really true. What do you think?
