Character Analysis

St. John’s sisters and Jane’s cousins, Diana and Mary Rivers are gentle, compassionate, educated young women who take to Jane immediately. Mary doesn’t have much personality, but Diana is a natural leader and teacher. Diana teaches German to both Jane and Mary and her firm insistence on Jane’s place in their household begins to push Jane and St. John together.
