Evie Wilcox in Howards End

Evie Wilcox

Evie, a fiercely healthy and athletic young lady, is really just summed up in those three words: fierce, healthy, and athletic. And we're not talking, like, Top Model "fierce" – rather, she's just determined to get her way. Not that Evie wants anything extraordinary…like her brothers, she's extremely conventional in her desires. She just wants to continue being wealthy, socially comfortable, and unembarrassed by anything. Is that too much to ask? In other words, Evie is simply the female equivalent of Charles and Paul – and the exact opposite of Helen Schlegel.
