82.84% "The character of Eugenie has proven to be quite the revelation! A proto-feminist to be sure. I can't tell if Eugenie is intended to be a lesbian within the confines of 1844 when the book was published or if it is merely an example of a strong female friendship. I opt more for the lesbian reading given the events of "The Road to Belgium". Regardless, she has some of the best dialogue in the entire novel."
