Ever since Sara mentioned her true feelings toward Booth, Hetty is openly supportive of Booth courting Sara. Hetty, however, truly does not trust Booth and does whatever she can to intrude on Booth and Sara whenever they are together. This situation is only a microcosm of the way most Avonlea residents, especially the traditionalists, feel toward the entire Elliot family. The antagonistic feeling of the townsfolk is aimed most specifically toward Viola, who they feel is too flamboyant. It is uncertain how long the town collectively will tolerate the Elliots. The one person who does not have this same opinion and who really does like and want to emulate Viola's zest for life is Janet, who befriends the minister's wife. However, a very public incident makes Janet believe that Viola is hiding a problem. Viola is hiding a problem, but not what Janet believes it to be. Written by Huggo
