in consequence of the missive, Ah, yes..., penned by Rebecca Nix
] I immediately felt a falseness. I'm not sure that Isabella cares for Catherine save as a welcome source of attention other than her sisters. I just felt no genuine affection from Isabella. She was pleased with Catherine because Catherine served her purposes.
I agree here. While this is not my first read of NA, my impression of IT on my first read was the same. I felt Isabella's professions of friendship towards Catherine were very shallow and not to be trusted. Just as I immediately liked Catherine I was immediately skeptical of Isabella. I think she (IT) is shows herself as a user and a manipulater from the very beginning of the book. Vicki I.
