Pride and Perfection
by R. J. Weinkam
In 1808, Jane Austen, after a series of tragedies and disappointments, has given up writing with no expectation of taking it up again. What a loss should she never complete her novels, our time travelers thought, as they befriend the young woman. But then something important happens. A curious event rekindles Jane’s interest in writing and she begins to revisit her early novels.
