One of the themes I culled from this book: Jane was intelligent and witty, and she personally felt that men did not appreciate these qualities. She had several suitors in her life, and she rejected the overtures of a few men, but for the most part, as she grew older, she came to recognize that her talents were not appreciated by men.
I've never read this book (so many books, so little time...;-) )Golda, if you've got the time and patience, I'd love to know more about how he justifies this. (I'm not saying it couldn't be true, but since it's not something that comes up in the bios that I have read, I'd like to be able to compare it.)Dierdre le Faye and Diane Tomalin seem to say that she was hard to get to know, silent and forbidding and 'did not perform to strangers'and this is what put people off.
