Typical Jane Austen

Back to the dark days of ' gentle' women having to 'catch' a man with money in order to have a home of her own, as they could not manage their own inheritance. Tale of 'socially inferior lady who marries quite outside her 'class', to the chagrin of her peers.
I was no so impressed with Gasine Smith's narration. Her diction was excellent, but her tone rather uninteresting; she did not add any colour to the romance.
