Jane shot and scored sixty-five. Luc scored thirty-four."Now remind me. Why do they call you Lucky?" she asked as she reached for the darts.He pulled them back out of her reach as a slow, purely licentious smile curved his mouth.

And so this is a kind of flashback to a time when that's what every woman went through.

And the author's conclusion was that one of the reason's Jane Austen might not have married when she did have the opportunity...well, she watched her very dear nieces and friends die in childbirth! And it was like a death sentence: You get married and you will have children. You have children and you will die. (Laughs) I mean, it was a terrifying world."
