Started out very interesting but became a bit too flowery for me. How unfulfilled is a woman without marriage? How can a woman possibly be complete in life without a man to love and look after and how incomplete must she be without children? Bits stolen from other books- the younger sister making a fool of herself with a gentleman who is using her for the money he thinks she has and then flinging herself into the river when he spurns her. Taken back for recovery where she is weak from a broken heart until she slowly realises that another has loved her all along.... reminds me of sense and sensibility a bit too much ( )
