Connie Brandt asked:
I really enjoyed but am not sure if young Henk is a good guy or a bad guy. Did he just travel around and find vulnerable women like Agnes?

Dawn Stowell Perhaps you mean the young man, Bradwen Jones, who lived with Agnes/Emelie? The author gives us the young male character, Bradwen, as a counterpart to Agnes' mature woman figure. Agnes hopes to gain some positive effect by allowing him to be around. Bradwen wants to satisfy his curiosity about women. Bradwen's quest to get his unasked questions answered began when his mother lay dying and he could hardly make sense of what she was saying as he was so distracted by her beauty. The author does not say how old Bradwen was when his mother died. This may have had a strong effect on him. So, it seems that Bradwen is trying to work out his feelings about women. Bradwen was not preying on women; he in fact did not travel very far at all from home to find the other two women. I see Bradwen's curiosity being fulfilled in a 'good' way with nothing bad about it. It was just coincidence that the three women lived in the same area. These are just my thoughts. I hope this helps :)
