No Name - Norah

Continuing my reading of Wilkie Collins' No Name, I am revising my view of Norah Vanstone, the elder of the two Vanstone daughters. She is quiet and reserved and boring when compared to her younger sister Magdalen. I am coming to believe, however, that Norah is an example of still waters which run deep. She observes Magdalen's behavior and foresees consequences. Time will tell if Norah is right.

I am trying to avoid spoilers in my comments here. This book is a fun read, and I recommend it to readers who enjoy 19th century literature.
