In response to I shall not attempt to deny..., written by Barbara on March 24, 1998 at 01:18:14
Barb, I am not at all surprised to find that you don't agree with Tomalin in this point. ;-)
I think what has caused people to be unconvinced of the love between the Brandons is that we don't get to see any of it, as we do with Willoughby. The marriage to Brandon seems "tacked on" at the end of the book. The whole ending is rushed as a matter of fact. I wonder why that is? Did she change the ending to please her family? Did she run out of creative steam? Or had she simply resolved to her satisfaction the argument of Sense vs. Sensibility and so then just quickly tied up the loose ends?
