Added DiffLines:

* IAmNotPretty: Kilmeny sincerely believes this, and is under the impression that men stare at her only because she is so very ugly. Justified in that her guardians removed or destroyed every mirror in her house to prevent the vanity that consumed her mother, so she has no inkling of her appearance other than distorted reflections in the water.

* ThePromise: Treated very darkly in Kilmeny of the Orchard. Kilmeny's aunt and uncle fervently believe her muteness is owed to a vow of silence taken by her mother during her pregnancy, to never speak another word to the father that rejected her. Even when her father lay dying and asked his daughter to speak one word of reconciliation, Kilmeny's mother refused. She didn't speak a word until after her baby's birth, when she broke down sobbing.
