Booking through Thursday: Heroine

Jumping on the bandwagon

Today's question:

Who is your favorite female lead character? And why? (And yes, of course, you can name more than one . . . I always have trouble narrowing down these things to one name, why should I force you to?)

Oh, gosh, hard one. I'll have to say Elizabeth Bennet and Anne Shirley, for similar reasons, actually. They both have a strong sense of self that transcends their circumstances when necessary, but they are also willing to change and grow when they realize they are wrong or when their needs change.

I've always loved Anne Elliot (Persuasion), and Desiree (from the Annemarie Selinko novel of the same name). I'm sure there is someone from when I was younger but I'm drawing a blank.
