Venetia is a delightful heroine, mature and intelligent while at the same time extremely naive about men and the ways of the world - so much so that she has absolutely no notion just how much danger her new next-door neighbour, the wicked Lord Damerel, could be to her.

Venetia, the character, is beautiful, strong, smart, capable, honest enough to appreciate her mother's weakness-and adroit enough to use it to her advantage-she isn't 19 years old, but she is properly innocent-to quote the Bible-cautious as serpents but innocent as doves-this type of woman is what we all would like to be.
