I guess I am missing something by not reading ahead.
Actually, I guess I should have kept my mouth shut and just discussed what was in these chapters. But, it is Chapter 12 where Tomalin says "the implication is clear that Jane took his attentions seriously", plus "her bleak remembrance and persistent interest in him is sufficiently demonstrated in a letter written in Nov, 1798, nearly three years after their brief romance" So she is setting up the premise that Tom LeFroy was very important to Jane and I took that to mean Tomalin believes Tom was the the Love of her life- Which impression is bourne out later in the book.
Sorry, you were doing the right way- I got ahead of myself.
