Each observer is blinded to the true Cathy by her uncanny resemblance to her mother, who is implicated in all of the children’s misfortunes. Cathy herself is fractured by her own desire for her mother’s beauty and her revulsion at the idea that she might be anything like Corrine. In consequence, Cathy repeatedly seeks to reassure readers (and 42 V. C. Andrews herself) that she will eradicate in herself any resemblance to her mother and enter adulthood as a unique individual, Catherine Dollanganger.

Cathy the character is aware of constantly being observed—by her grandmother, her mother, her brother—and objectified by the observers. To the grandmother, Cathy is the living result of evildoing; to Corrine, she is a reminder of lost youth; and to Chris, she is a nubile and desirable woman. Each observer is blinded to the true Cathy by her uncanny resemblance to her mother, who is implicated in all of the children’s misfortunes. Cathy herself is fractured by her own desire for her mother’s beauty and her revulsion at the idea that she might be anything like Corrine.

The hall is home to the senior Foxworths and an uncomfortably familiar space to Corrine, who hopes that it will once again provide her with a means of escape from its gloomy confines. Second, setting reveals basic information—social status, economic circumstances, tastes, way of life—about the characters.
