Bettina, a Southern Belle

I’m Bettina, a Southern belle living with my widowed brother, Charles and my nephew, Joseph in their plantation home with its quaint shutters.  As the mistress, I run the household while Charles takes care of the daily business matters.

Over the years, I have had many suitors desiring to marry me but I have rejected them all.  Then, I fell madly in love with Ben, Charles’ negro wagon driver. 

The first time I laid eyes upon him, I knew that I could love or belong to no other man.  Presently, I’m sneaking off to meet him at our secret place.
