Who is Harriett Frean? she is an insignificant women with no past no present and no future.
Her life is so empty, the book reminded me of the curious case of Benjamin Button , which contained an insignificant life as well.
There are a lot of lessons that you could learn from this book, such as never be too good, never give up your dreams , and be yourself.
Harriett seemed to me that she hadn't developed a personality of her own in her entire life, the book began with Harriett the child , and she hadn't grown a year ever since.
She was so dependent of her parents, her whole world consisted of them, she regarded them as perfect people and she never wanted anything else while with them.
Harriett's education surrounded her with bars of protection from the outside world ,which soon become bars that were imprisoning her.
