YMMV: Kilmeny of the Orchard

  • Tastes Like Diabetes
  • Values Dissonance: Kilmeny is illegitimate, and it is a sign of Eric's love for her that it doesn't matter to him. Today this doesn't seem like such a big deal, but it would have been seen a more significant gesture when the book was written.
  • Purity Sue: Kilmeny is so, so perfect! Eric is so, so perfect! These pair do not have one realistic character flaw between them.
