This is a funny and smart young woman who doesn't know how to let others see her good attributes when she is in public. She isn't beautiful, and she is somewhat quiet. Only the people close to her realize how wonderful she is. She is delighted to officially become a spinster because she doesn't like to dance, and she loves the freedom of dressing how she wants to and eating what she wants. She is envious of the way men have so much more freedom than women.
