Hello and welcome to my Top 5 Wednesday post!
This week’s theme is characters I defend…
5.) Eden from The Mapmaker’s Children
Honestly, if you have not personally undergone infertility or seen a close friend/relative experience it, you will most likely NOT understand Eden’s character. I think McCoy did a wonderful job with her portrayal of a woman who had gone through infertility.

4.) Faith from The Lie Tree
Faith, another misunderstood character, is a very complex character. I have seen reviews where people did not care for Faith, but I don’t think people understand how parental neglect can affect a child or that strong desire for parental approval.

3.) Anna from My Sister’s Keeper
I will always be #TeamAnna on this one. I cannot imagine what it would feel like to know that I was basically bred to donate (blood, tissue, organs, marrow, etc) to an ill sibling… To know that was my sole purpose in life…
2.) Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre
Alright, I admit that Rochester’s omission in this book was pretty low… HOWEVER he was doing the best he could with the hand he was dealt. I can’t really go into it without spoiling the book, but I always felt sorry for Rochester’s situation. Deep down, he really was a good guy, he just made some poor decisions.
1.) Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights
Heathcliff has my heart. I know he does some AWEFUL things in this book, but I really don’t blame him for everything he had to endure.
Who are the characters you always defend? Feel free to link to your own T5W post, I love to read them!
