And I think Austen might have liked it too.
Sarah's right about Henry C. He did have some feeling for Fanny, at least enough to recognize her value as a wife. I don't know how deep his love for Fanny went, though.
But I feel for Willoughby more than the general rakes in Austen - and I admit find most of them vastly entertaining.
