Well, that was partly the problem. I don't know if the French are more emotional than other nationalities or if that is just another stereotype (which seems likely) but it was an "English" school and one should scorn tears. (As well as honourably being silent under bullying, etc.) Simone did perhaps cry too much (stereotyping?), but I bet I would have too! And Grizel never made things easier for her, or anyone else. But Simone did toughen up and become a strong woman and not a spineless jellyfish.
Mademoiselle would have been so proud.

Thanks Finn. I do like your Simone.
