This paper, using Cranford, Ruth, Wives and Daughters and Sylvia's Lovers, develops the topics of the Scott chapter to suggest that, through an awareness of the power of time and circumstance to shape our lives, the traditional female values of love and forgiveness are revealed as our best hope for changing the course of history and directing the future of the community and the nation.
