understand how tenuous her position is i understand that even on the ever shifting tidelands one does not rock boats i understand that a woman who has seen nothing of the world beyond her little isolated pocket of it a mother of two with no man to speak for her in a profession she has to keep emphasizing does not include 17th century viagra or magical spells she s gotta lay a little low and not be seen as shrill or strident or defensive or any of those words we love so much to hear when a reasonable woman responds to chronically unreasonable people people like that broadly drawn mrs miller for example and i didn t need her to be anachronistically assertive or ooh rah empowered but even a little spark in her interior life would have been welcome one suppressed eyeroll or clenched

easily it s an impressive number of synonyms for an endlessly agreeable person but it doesn t give her character much depth her daughter alys makes up for alinor s lack of indignation but as a
