Miss Sharp in the Presence of the Enemy
Lowly teaching assistant Becky issues headmistress Miss Pinkerton with an ultimatum – pay her properly to teach at her Academy for Young Ladies or find her a station elsewhere. Miss Pinkerton calls Becky’s bluff, and Becky is forced to pack away her meagre possessions. Kindly stockbroker’s daughter Amelia Sedley takes pity on the poor orphan and offers to take her home for the week.
