The very first moment I beheld him, my heart was irrevocably gone.
I shouldn't admit this to anyone, let alone Tracy, as she wrote her thesis on the esteemable Lady Jane, but I knew nothing about this book until today. Although that quote above has long been a favorite of mine, I clearly never knew which of her lovely books it came from. Inexcusable. Silver lining: there's more Austen to devour! Add the fact that the movie is being released this weekend and my Jane-loving heart is swooning.
