Miss Villets - the librarian is another formidable critic of Carol because she has all the ladies on her side in ticking off Carol. It is obvious that Miss Villet has formed her opinion about Carol even before she could meet her. She too is a typical example of the narrow minded provincial attitude in the way she talks self righteously about the duties of the librarian towards the books- side tracking the readers altogether.


In this chapter Carol is portrayed in a retrospective mood. She realizes that she has been so busy telling people about herself that she never gave them a chance to tell her what they thought of her. So she starts observing people’s reaction to her and feels devastated by what she finds. Warm and friendly by nature, she cannot bear the spitefulness of the people in whose company she would have to spend the rest of her life. She is in a dilemma. She has to follow her instincts in her treatment of the poor maids and countless poor children, or sacrifice what she considered to be right for the sake of the company of the narrow minded housewives, and allow them to be her judges for the rest of her life. It is a crucial question every rebel has to face. How Carol faces it is portrayed in the latter part of the novel.
