The Miss Guests in The Mill on the Floss

By George Eliot

The Miss Guests

These are Stephen’s sisters, who seem to operate as a collective unit, much like the Dodsons. The Miss Guests are wealthy and snobbish for the most part, though they become very fond of Lucy and even maintain a friendship with her after Stephen runs off with Maggie. In the scandal with Maggie, they naturally take their brother’s side and are convinced that Maggie is a fortune hunter out to marry Stephen for his money.
