This chapter further delineates multiple factors that will impact the character, behavior, and life of young Reatha Watson. Societal influences are examined, particularly those pertaining to the imposition of Victorian restraints upon the American way of life and those culminating in society’s subsequent rebellion against and dismantling of such restraints. Reatha’s inherent personality traits are described. The effect of Reatha’s family (specifically her father, William, and mother, Rose) and their way of life upon her formative years is again touched upon. The beginning of Reatha’s education in a convent school is additionally highlighted, as it is during this time that her recurring ambition to become a nun first appears.

Keywords:   Reatha, Watson, Victorian, William, Rose, mother, father, school, family, nun
