About Me.

Pleased to meet you. My name is Violet, Violet Edwards.

I’m afraid I can’t tell you where I’m from. Papa is a Vicar you see, and it would cause an awful scandal if he were to know I was involved in something like this. My mother would have liked it, I imagine. She was a Russian poet you know, although Papa threw her books out along with her so I’ve never read any of her work. I do love books though; I must have inherited my love of literature from her. My life is rather ordinary I suppose. I go to church, I study, I do everything else a young lady of my station is expected to do. I shall be a teacher or a governess, until I make a suitable marriage. I think, oh, it doesn’t matter what I think. Sometimes I can’t help feeling as though something is amiss, as though God’s plans for me are quite different from Papa’s. I mustn’t talk like that though, I know. You must think me quite ungrateful. I assure you, I love Papa, and my life very much. I must learn to be content. I am content. I am.
