Today's fan mail letter comes to us from a college student who is currently studying in Spain! Grace, I wish I could trade you places. Thank you for your letter!
Dear Jane Austen,
Thank you for introducing me to the complexity and beauty of the relationships between sisters. For showing me time and time again that people are complex and not always what they seem. For giving me a world where there are honorable, imperfect men whose discomfort and occasional lack of eloquence makes them all the more endearing. You created brave, unconventional heroines with glaring faults, and let them find happiness in their own way. Thank you for your contributions to literature, but mostly your contributions to my life.
Yours most affectionately,
