What qualities do you think Jane Austen would have looked for in a soul mate? Do you feel that Mr. Ashford is the ideal counterpart for Jane Austen, and if so, why or why not?
I didn't see him as an ideal person for Jane, but maybe I am a bit hard on him. Maybe I wanted Jane to have a love so bad, I wanted to blame him for not being strong enought to say, Jane, we are getting married no matter the family or the blessed heritage deal and stuck with it. Of course, I didnt live in that time, and that is why Syrie James did such a wonderful job writing it. She wrote really the way it wouldhave been in that era. And that is what made the ending so realistic.
