I thought I knew Jane's life, but picking up Persuasion last night, I read her little biography again and discovered a treasure; she published her first book, Sense and Sensibility, at her own expense! This little nugget proved to sink deeply.
I had a book I thought ready for publishing, and the publisher disagreed. I balked and sought advice from friends, and waited for the "winds to change" ( sorry for the Mary Poppins allusion! We watched some of it last night;). And this morning, I found new inspiration once again. Could it be I have someone praying for me named Jane?
