Evangeline is educated and articulate and decisive.  She frequently refers to her relatives as “dear” or “pet.”  She is on the side of goodness and justice.

Harriet has a more ingenuous voice and relates to her mother-in-law as a mentor.  She is out on the growing edge.  She has a good heart.

Ralph has a more casual way of relating.  He uses P.G. Wodehouse-isms, e.g. “What ho” and “Toodle pip.”  He, too, means well and is becoming increasingly mature.
