Revealing mistake: In the bedroom, when Cassandra asks about what Jane has been writing and Jane answers, "Just something I started in London", when Jane gets up and moves to the table, it is obvious that she is wearing a g-string under her nightgown.

Other mistake: When Henry and Lefroy strip off before going swimming, they enter the water wearing their boots, however their trousers have been removed despite there not having been time for them to remove them and replace the boots.


Tom Lefroy: If you wish to practice the art of fiction, to be considered the equal of a masculine author, experience is vital.

Mrs. Radcliffe: To have a wife who has a mind is considered not quite proper. To have a wife with a literary reputation nothing short of scandalous.

Mr. Wisley: Sometimes affection is a shy flower that takes time to blossom.
