Mrs. Farebrother

Character Analysis

Mrs. Farebrother is Mr. Farebrother's mother, not his wife; so don't let the name fool you. She's an elegant and upright older woman with pretty decided opinions, especially on the subject of the propriety of the game of whist (a card game like bridge or spades) as a pastime for clergymen – and their mothers.
