    I did read one of your books! Sense and Sensibility. My version had notes that made the story much more meaningful because they provided great context about what was going on in history, what words used to mean, etc. I, too, loved the well-developed characters but found Marianne’s antics tiresome at times. I’m reading Persuasion now and love it so far.
