I like Jane's books for the same reasons...

] Lea, I agree with you entirely. This is one of the reasons why I love JA's books. The society of her day had a conscience about what was right and wrong and that was because Christianity was the very basis of their society. Even if a person did not believe God's word they still had to abide by it. The people still had an innocence and a respect for one another.They were conscious of each others feelings and those in privileged positions were encouraged to be benevolent to those less fortunate than themselves.Today it is not so. We've lost our innocence and our world has expanded (the Global Village)and we've lost that sense of belonging in a way. Anyway I'll stop ranting and conclude that JA's world helps me to maintain an optimistic view of life and I'll always continue to look for the good things in others and I'll keep looking for the good things in her books!
Thanks for your comments. It's nice to talk to you over here in the "Library". I've enjoyed your posts on the Persuasion board,too. I've noticed we have similar viewpoints on several things.
