Sweetest Lady, #2
Miss Harriet Smith, Emma
"She was a very pretty girl, and her beauty happened to be of a sort which Emma particularly admired. She was short, plump, and fair, with a fine bloom, blue eyes, light hair, regular features, and a look of great sweetness."Emma’s young protégé is as sweet and gullible as they come. In fact, she is so kind and pliable that her handsome yeoman farmer, Mr. Robert Martin, though hurt when she rejected his suit, was not at all turned off by her. As soon as he saw a second opportunity, he asked for her hand again. Even Mr. Knightley, that most discerning and exacting man, was won over by Miss Smith's artlessness and sweetness.
Miss Georgianna Darcy, Pride and Prejudice
Could there be a kinder, sweeter sister than Georgianna Darcy? This pretty, painfully shy sixteen-year-old trusts her brother's choice in a woman implicitly, and immediately accepts Elizabeth Bennet into her heart. Darcy's devotion to his sweet sister opens Lizzy’s eyes further to his character. Here is how Jane Austen describes her: “There was sense and good humour in her face, and her manners were perfectly unassuming and gentle.”
