Lucy is a Jane Eyre without the chutzpah, and with loads less self-esteem; but shares Janes strict code of conduct, and forces you to value her. In a way, I believe Lucy finds an even worthier match than Jane did--in M. Paul Emmanuel, passionate professor of literature.
In a way, the scenes between him and Lucy excite my imagination all the more, because theyre understated, AND because I already know how the story ends. The pain lends the love story incredible passion--the tame, orderly, parallel love story of Graham and Paulina just places that of Paul and Lucy in greater relief.
The two greatest actions in the book--a slap and a kiss--are so climactic and satisfying, that when I get to that section of the novel, I wont put it down until the end.
