I was definitely surprised. Maybe it’s my failing memory, but I could not remember instances of her growth with regard to her prejudices prior to her relationship with Mr. Crimmins. Although I loved seeing her branching out and being open to love outside of her usual type.

    I’m not sure she would have approved of Kirby dating a black man if she hadn’t found this relationship, though. But I guess that is people, much of the time. They don’t see what is right until it affects them personally.
