I always thought Morwenna was one of the saddest characters in the whole poldark saga, along with jinny Carter. Both women never really got over the trauma of their early years and carried with them an inner sadness that became part of their personalities.  


 But I think Jinny not quite so much as Wenna.  Jinny was a little stronger I beloieve, but her situation was a little different.  She had been happy in her marriage to Jim, annd she seemed to have good realtions with both of her children Ben and Katie.  Although I think she failed to tell Katie the facts of life about how babies are made.

 Well, I see now looking over the vidoes on YouTube that you are right.  My apologies.

 You're right.  But phonetically, I think it was probably pronounced with the long e sound.

She was Elizabeth's cousin, hired by her to be a governess for Geoffrey Charles.  She was described in the books as being painfully shy, near-sighted, and also dark-skinned (which was considered a disadvantage then for attracting men, since fair skin, like that of Elizabeth was what was considered most "beautiful"),  however, she had an attractive figure.  Geoffrey Charlles played a huge role in bringing Morwenna and Drake together, as GC also became very fond of Drake.  The three of them would walk along the beach together.


They *should* have run into Demelza, Jeremy, and Garrick on the beach.
