A widow working as a housekeeper whose scandalous affair links her to an infamous man.
Learning about middling or lower-class women like Kezia Richardson is sometimes nearly impossible. Women didn’t hold jobs, and only rarely had portraits painted of them, or left paper-trails. The only reason we even know she existed is because of the scandals she was involved in; scandals which, of course, involved men. Women remained in the political and social background, meaning we can only speculate about what her personal opinions and experiences were.
