A lucky coincidence! Your very own JA heroine in your own life!
] While reading Henry's words she would often be astonished at the way he teases Catherine. She's never met anyone like him before. Now I see the reason why CM is attracted to Henry. She's never met anyone like him before.
JA's particular skill here was to write a hero so well suited to her heroine. Your daughter's reaction is so interesting - it just proves that he is the kind of man that a sweet young person would take to. I myself read NA at age 16, and fell instantly in love with Henry! He must be a good teen pin-up ;)
Here's hoping when your little Catherine brings a beau home he's just like Henry! Her reactions to the characters show a good taste and jusdgement in her!
