Both are young when they meet, -it is who uses Violet's proper instincts to achieve with jeweller Tuker, it is Minnie who passes off Nicholas Gurrel's son as and and Minnie, who as Nicholas' wife, forfeits his love with her consuming of the girl who jilted him -- Edwin, whom she hates her life their daughter escapes Minnie on her own and wife and later their daughter, Nicolene. And right the Minnie inflicts, to as eventual happy of English origin, this balances evil grays.
