Biography: 

Like her mother, the 20-year-old daughter of "Mrs. Harriss" never gets a first name. In other respects too she takes after her mother: "looking not wan so much as delicate and fragile and not even fragile so much as cold, evanescent, like one of the stalked white early spring flowers bloomed ahead of its time into the snow and the ice and doomed before your eyes without even knowing that it was dying, feeling not even any pain" (190–91). Like her brother, Max, Miss Harriss has been spoiled. Not unwilling to fight her rival, Miss Cayley, Miss Harriss eventually gets her man in Sebastian Gualdres. When Gavin Stevens marries the widowed Mrs. Harriss, Mrs. Gualdres becomes one of Steven’s "stepchildren" (238).
