Smith, Mrs. Harold

Nathaniel Sowerby’s adoring sister, determined that her husband’s position in the world should he of use to her brother.

"...a clever, bright woman, good-looking for her time of life--and she was now over forty-with a keen sense of the value of all worldly things, and a keen relish for all the world's pleasures. She was neither labourious, nor well-informed, nor perhaps altogether honest ... but then she was neither dull nor pompous, and if she was conceited, she did not show it" - Framley Parsonage
