Part IV? I need to change my numbers! I’ll be lost in a sea of Roman numerals if I continue! 🙂
I love Emma’s governess. When she lived with Emma and her family she was Miss Taylor. After Emma was grown, she married and became Mrs. Weston. Emma’s governess, the lovely Mrs. Weston is my choice for the unsung hero.
Isabella and Emma lost their mother. Isabella was old enough to remember, but Emma was not. Mr. Woodhouse lost his wife. Mrs. Weston was a governess to the girls of a grieving family. This could not have been an easy situation. Mrs. Weston was nanny, governess, sister, teacher, comforter, and the list goes on, to the young girls she cared for. And then, she also had a father who was hurt and shattered. I felt that Mrs. Weston became a daughter to Mr. Woodhouse. How could I not choose Mrs. Weston for my unsung heroine?
I have not read all of Jane Austen’s books, however, Emma is my favorite at this time. The BBC did a wonderful job filming Emma. In fact, I own it. Have you read Emma? Have you seen the BBC version of Emma? I’d love to hear from you. 🙂
