1. Her father's home
2. The Cumnor Family / The Towers
3. Hamley Hall
4. Her home after the marriage to Claire Kirkpatrick
5. The Miss Brownings
She manages to make friends with them and and live peaceably with them all yet is the most influenced by Mrs. Hamley and Roger. These 2 invited her into their lives and helped her through her challenges. Here she was invited to grow and develop her mind and heart.
This is a very different experience from her step-sister Cynthia who is sent away to school at a young age and is not invited into any family culture until Mr. Gibson marries her mother. Imagine how things would have been different for Cynthia if she had been invited into a home and encouraged to develop her mind and heart the way that Molly had.
No wonder Cynthia had so many struggles and yet look at all the good things about Cynthia's character! We know nothing about her time away but I wonder if there was a mentor or two in her past. Hopefully, the school she was sent to was not like the school that Jane Eyre was sent to but I think there must have been a mentor or two there to help Cynthia. Yet how sad that Cynthia did not have a family culture that would help her as she struggled through growing up.
Molly and Cynthia both have the opportunity to take these experiences they have had to build their own family cultures. I wonder what they will choose to include.
