Back then I wanted so bad to conform to my peers that I lost sight of my religion. My parents soon found out and allowed me to go without the hijab until I felt ready to start wearing it again.

Rosamond is the daughter of a factory owner who is “very charming” and has “radiant vivacity” (Bronte 704-705). She proves to be the only exception to Bronte’s stereotype of the inverse relationship to beauty and personality.
