Bonner, Mary

Niece of Sir Thomas Underwood, who refused to marry Ralph, the heir, because she was in love with the other Ralph, Ralph Newton.

One of the principal characters in Ralph the Heir.

"She was tall and somewhat large, with fair hair ... with dark eyes, and perfect eyebrows, and a face which, either for colour or lines of beauty, might have been taken as a model for any female saint or martyr. There was a perfection of symmetry about it, - an assertion of intelligence combined with the loveliness." - Ralph The Heir
