The second daughter to Robert and Cora, Edith is awkward and often overlooked by her family. She is the younger sister of Mary and older sister of Sybil. She resents Mary for many reasons, but the biggest and most timely is Mary's blas attitude toward their cousin Patrick, who died on the Titanic and was due to wed Mary, who had no interest in him. Edith did and no one paid any attention. She doesn't care that the settlement will not be overturned, since she would not have inherited either way. If anything, she is pleased that Mary will not be able to lord it over her. She is generally in a half-permanent rage that the interests of her beautiful sister are always placed above hers in any family plan.

Edith tends to fall in love easily, getting excited when shown the slightest bit of attention, much less affection. Unlucky at love, she worries she is destined to become a spinster and most of her family seems to agree and share in that concern. Left to her own devices and making the most of the fact that hardly anyone is paying attention, Edith goes off on her own now and then to learn to drive, help a family run a farm and explore a possible career in journalism.

Background: She was born in 1894.
