Helen, I wanted to say more about what you wrote, had to wait until after a nice long walk. A very long Musgrove sisters walk.
I do like how you resolve my problem by talking about how Jane deals with this guy. She's got a perfect sense of boundaries, as we'd call it today. Most women who get in trouble with real Rochesters somehow don't have theirs intact nearly as well as Jane did.
So that all helped a lot, and I appreciate it.
Still, though, jumping up again to attraction to these types in the first place, I guess I must have outgrown what seems to me to be an obsessive, got-to-have-you OJ type since last reading Jane Eyre. Grown up or jaded, I am not sure which, but I find these days I prefer a more serene, less desperate type of attachment.
