30-Day October Book Challenge ~ Day 16

Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen

Day 16 ~ Favorite female character

 

This character is witty, smart, feisty, stubborn, loving, forgiving, tempestuous, energetic, stubborn and practical.

 

Wait, did I use stubborn twice? Why, yes, yes I did. Because Elizabeth Bennet is stubborn, yet not without cause. Certainly if I had a Mr. Darcy in my life, I'd be stubborn, too. But only until I saw Pemberley, just like Lizzie. The woman knew when it was time to change course.

 

Such a strong-willed character hiding behind such an innocent look.
