] I can think of one, Caroline. In Emma, when Mr. Knightly comes back from London and finds Emma in the shrubbery, thinking she is distraught of Frank Churchill. He presses her hand to his heart and says, "Time, dear Emma, will heal the wound." And JA tells us that she felt a "flutter of pleasure"
] Henry has this as an example of a thrill in JA over on his page- that's how I remember it!
Of course!And I should have remembered that Henry is always first in these things! ;-) Thanks, dear!
Maggie Lane wrote a book called Jane Austen and Food which is worth the read. She mentions that Emma has more references to food than any other novel.
It also has more refences to farming than any other Austen novel! (In my own, very flawed, research notes;-) )Now you've given me another book to read! Oh heavens! (Don't suppose you'd review it for the bib.?)
