Yes indeed, I sympathize with both Fanny Price and Jane Eyre, and I don't think they're quite as dissimilar characters as some people might think.
Henry, isn't there some speculation that, much as Charlotte Bronte couldn't stand Austen's novels, Fanny might have been a model, even if a subconsicous one, for Jane Eyre?
