Oh how I love Persuasion! I'm sure I've read it twenty times and never tire of it. And I'm having so much fun tweeting it in 140-character bits.
Here are my Chapter 9 tweets. You can also follow the story on Twitter.
Persuasion, Ch 9: It is Louisa Musgrove whom Capt W loves. No, it is Henrietta. Such is the horserace that Anne must watch.
Persuasion, Ch9: One morning Anne & Capt W find themselves almost alone—only the little injured boy is there. Capt W as discomposed as Anne.
Persuasion, Ch9: Then Charles Hayter, Henrietta's jealous BF comes in. So does the little boy's brother, who clings to Anne's back.
Persuasion, Ch9: Hayter commands the boy to leave Anne alone, but it is Capt W who actually removes the boy from Anne and carries him away.
Persuasion, Ch9: Capt W's kindness & proximity to her person require "a long application of solitude and reflection" before Anne can chill.
