This woman has very few reasons to be as puffed up as she is. She is crabby and ornery most of the time because her husband doesn't pay any attention to her--and hasn't, for years. She forces her servants to keep the place spic and span. She's never been sure of herself and it's only the wealth of her husband that has given her any sense of self-worth, and if it were to disappear she would be dropped to the lowest of the low. Nevertheless, her redeeming value is an inner desire to have the children her husband never allowed. She's been forced into abortions all her life--and it's the reason for her tragic weight.
