When her husband dies, leaving her destitute with a pretty, innocent daughter on her hands, she uses all her wiles to find them both convenient husbands. Convenient to herself, that is.

Perhaps, if she had been spared, Miss Austen might have subjected her first youthful work to a similar revision< Less
