House Of The Seven Gables

House Of The Seven GablesBy: Nathaniel Hawthorne

Phoebe is the cousin of Hepzibah and Clifford, who is from the country. She was only supposed to be visiting Hepzibah for a short time, but ended up staying indefinitely, and eventually joining Clifford, Hepzibah, Holgrave, and Uncle Venner is the judge’s old residence. She is a happy person who usually sees the best in things. She does a good job in cheering up Clifford, as he seems less depressed when she is around. She is one of the only wholly "good" charecters as she has a sound moral standing and is not corruptible and malishious like many of the other charecters. She often makes the house seem brighter by tending to gardens and letting in fresh air. Eventually she falls in love with Holgrave and becomes verry close with Hepzibah and Clifford.

At the beginning of the book Phoebe is allways happy und upbeat about everything, while at the end she somtimes become sad or depressed. She still has a positive outlook most of the time, but knows both ends of the spectrum and can be sad out other emotions at times.
