“She knew that a hard struggle was before her”: Emily’s Quest

The illustration on the cover of Jane Urquhart’s book on L.M. Montgomery makes me think of something Jane Austen wrote to her sister Cassandra on the subject of decorating a hat. She says in her letter, “I cannot help thinking that it is more natural to have flowers grow out of the head than fruit. What think you on that subject?” (11 June 1799)
