my favourite character has always been James Onedin. As Maija already
has pointed out, the whole series would be unthinkable without Peter
Gilmore. You could find a substitute for Robert for some time, but
this would never do with James Onedin.
My favourite female character is of course Anne. She is such a tough
woman with a strong will matching her husband`s. And as Cyril Abraham
stresses in his Onedin books, she is truely "a most remarkable woman"!
