in consequence of the missive, Jane Austen and Willoughby, penned by Barbara
Thanks for sharing! I recently watched BJ and wondered how much of her real life wound up in her novels. Did people say "so and so is Mrs. J or Lady M, etc.) Did Jane go so far as to portray people amongst her acquaintance or even her own family? I must do some biographical reading now to rid me of the inaccuracies of the movie. According to the letter she sounds a little more like Marianne than Elinor. But she was probably a wonderful balance of both!
