** This happens hilariously in ''Anne of Windy Poplars.'' Anne facilitates a hasty elopment for two young people, Dovie and Jarvis, who had been engaged for over a year but were unable to get married because Dovie's father did not approve. So, they elope and Anne is left with the task of telling Dovie's notoriously bad-tempered father. She goes to break the news ...only to have her father say that he already knew and is relieved, as he was beginning to think Dovie would never muster up the pluck to go through with it. He'd picked out Jarvis for his daughter when they were children, but was GenreSavvy enough to realize that Jarvis would lose interest if there were no challenge, so he pretended to disapprove in order to encourage Jarvis to hang around more.
