I was interested to see how the couple would fall in love despite seemingly insurmountable challenges. Of course, they ultimately do, but there is so much implausibility along the way. Here's why:
-Key members of Marianne's family agree to her hair-brained, dangerous and highly improper scheme w/o a blink. No one really challenges her on this plan. For the most part, they aid and abet. It makes no sense whatsoever. It's so improper that she'd be ruined if all was discovered and everyone would be besmirched by the scandal, but they go along with it. It was a childish idea of revenge anyway.
-No one in her family really confronts or pushes back against the Lord for his threats. They just fold to his demands, even though they hold a certain amount of social power of their own. Couldn't they have called on allies and closed ranks? Anything but agree to wild schemes of an 18 yr old girl with no town bronze whatsover?
-The threatening Lord knows Marianne's name and who her family is. When he meets her in London, she tells him her name is Marianne and he knows who her family is. She has taken on the surname of a cousin (a KNOWN cousin).Read more ›
The main character of "A Lady of Letters" is doing such improbable things and for the most part with no motive at all (not even an improbable one) that the whole reading experience becomes truly annoying. The only good part is when the whole family together rally against the authorities (fantastic too, but at least logically so).
