It was generally evident whenever they met, that he did admire her; and to her it was equally evident that Jane was yielding to the preference which she had begun to entertain for him from the first, and was in a way to be very much in love.


Hi.

The quote is from Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, and where I underlined is where it far surpasses my understanding and knowledge, so to speak, incapable of making out myself what it means.

Can anyone throw a piece of rehrasal of the underlined or simply suggest a revision in plain and easier English?


yielding to the preference" , entertain for him from the first

specifically seem to be where I'm lost at..

Thanks.


Just in case, let me add an online link to the novel

    Jane was succumbing to the deep feelings her heart sensed from that first moment their eyes touched...

    Jane Austen, I'm not.

    Simple...I am. :)
