Why I love Austen....

"You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant."
-Jane Austen, Persuasion, Ch. 23
Captain Wentworth's letter to Anne

People sometimes ask what I love about Persuasion... I think that explains most of it (of course there are plenty other reasons)....aahhh I think I'm melting.......
