] 4. Religion - This is always a tough subject to handle in fiction. Georgianaís questioning of her belovedís religious beliefs did not seem in character. It may have been truly an issue at the time but it would seem like bad manners would it not to question a friend. The first time it was brought up, I figured it was because it was a sign of the times. The second time it was brought up, I figured it was because they were picking the right tutor for the kids. After that, I felt like I was being preached too. Frankly, I just plain resented it.
Cassie, I gather from various sources that there is actually a religious connection for the authors: ie that they _were_ using the book to do a bit of preaching. So you were right to feel that you were being preached to.
