There, she lived with the Hemingways, who introduced her to Ned Bashford, a man who did not belive in the truth and purity of women, and that finally falls in love with Loretta. </li></ul><ul><li>As the weeks pass Loretta becomes a small centre of things, not just a pale orb around her sister; she receives letters from Billy though she almost doesn’t care about him anymore until one morning she receives a letter that put tragedy into her face. Billy made reproaches to Loretta saying that when a women allowed a man kiss her, she always married him, that it was terrible if she didn’t , and Loretta is convinced that she ought to marry Billy. </li></ul>

She has blue eyes. </li></ul><ul><li>DAISY, Loretta’s sister. Loretta described her with a brilliant and nature personality. </li></ul><ul><li>CAPTAIN KITT, Daisy’s husband, he only wants Loretta to help her wife with the household. </li></ul><ul><li>EDWARD “NED” BASHFORD, a man of the world, who has philosophised his experiences and who doesn’t believe in the veracity or purity of women. He confuses superficiality with profundity. </li></ul><ul><li>BILLY MARSH, a raw boy who is just about as innocent as Loretta. </li></ul><ul><li>ALICE HEMINGWAY, a society woman with a lonely heart and imaginative mind. </li></ul><ul><li>JACK HEMINGWAY, Alice Hemingway’s husband. He pets Loretta on the time she lives with them. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>A wicked woman takes place in the Hemingway’s house located in Santa Clara’s town in California. There, Loretta who was a shy and innocent young woman who always lived depending on her sister Daisy and grew up in an environment where she was inhibited and where was not taken into account, becomes the small centre of attention; she was petted by Jack Hemingway, spoiled by Alice Hemingway, and devotedly attended by Ned Bashford. She swiftly developed her personality and discovered her own wishes. </li></ul>
