    Too many errors

    You have no idea who the characters even are with the amount of typo's. I couldn't get past the first two pages. I don't have the patience to determine what the story is even relating. Several sentences were jumbled with symbols. I would have just read a photocopied page than one that was so messed up.

    My new favorite author

    Loved this classic novel. Semi auto biographical, Fanny herself proves the world and its people struggle with some of the same issues no matter what century you live in. A very refreshing strong feminist style with an interesting historical view of early 20th century small town America. Move over Jane Austen you have competition.
