Adele just wanted to lay low Women in the roles of governesses, ladies’ companions and woman in the other roles were not to speak their feelings. But there were ways to let them be known Adele was Mrs. Fairfield’s foster child and Adele was being molded into the perfect quiet English model of womanhood. As she worked away all the edges of her husband’s illegitimate daughter.
I couldn’t seem to get into this story. Maybe because this story dragged for me a lot in the beginning. Also Adele’s stepmother is trying so hard to turn her into a good woman so the stain of being illigitimacy didn’t stain her life. Also to let a man take liberties with her body she isn’t doing a good thing to let Edward continue. No matter how much she may have desired him. I maybe wrong but I just didn’t get drawn into this story.
