How can a girl settle for less when the first ever book she read introduced her to a hero like Mr. Darcy!
Though a fictional character, how can the heart dare not hope that such a person cannot not exist!
All his arrogance, his pride, his weaknesses make him all the more real.
All the great many imperfections of his, designed to vex a woman, becomes his very perfections.
From the then-silly-innocent heart to the now-battered-somewhat-mature heart, the hope remains steady and strong.
What with the world full of Mr. Collinses and Mr. Wickhams, somewhere a Mr. Darcy must be out there too!
Ruined for life…in love…romance…marriage!
