The names are kind of strange, Charity Royal shes called charity because that is the only reason she in there in the village due to lawyer Royals charity of bringing her down from the mountain, Honorius Hatchard- because he is honored? Kind of too cheesy for me to stand
Lol- Felt in any deader in his grave than she did in his library" wow lol
Is it wrong that I see something not quite right with the name Harney? Lol or Lucious for that matter
Page 364, she misses the mountain
Lawyer Royal was harsh and violent, and still weaker."
What does she mean she holds sway in the house?
She is a rather unlikeable character, shes coarse, indignant, hateful, she jumps to conclusions, and nothing seems to be good enough for her, and even though Mr. Royal isn't that great of a guy I think she was a little harsher than necessary on him, im not saying she should of married him or let him in her room but that she didn't need to go to the extremes she did
Why does Harney like her? She bit his head off and blamed him for everything and yet he likes her and tries to help her?
I still don't have a clear idea of what she looks like? The candle lit appearance at night helped, but what is her skin tone? At the beginning I think they said something about it being swarthy? She has to be pretty for Harney to like her so despite her horrible personality?
Page 386 she starting to see where her personality and pride comes from
Page 388 why does Wharton feel it so necessary to constantly point out Charitys inadequacy in understanding the things the men talk about? She does this in a lot of her stories, stereotyping women as dull and not quite as smart as men, I'm starting to miss James
"You kin stay." Interesting page 394
I don't understand her? At all. Page 396-397
What does the miles mean don't take things hard? Page 400
Her changing moods and constant examinations going back and forth on every issue are giving me a headache
'for a moment she was inclined to sneer at herself for not having used the arts that might have kept him"
"if he'd wanted you the right way he'd have said so." Ouch
When pleads Charity! On page 412 you get the sense that he is just at his ropes end with her pride, he offers her the best he can of himself, then having her reject that he offers her want she actually wants only trying to do right by her, and make her happy and she scorns that too, I really hate this character.
That's not true of you. It can't be." I sort of feel pity for her now
