Although she was born in England, Rolinda’s family moved to the United States when she was very young. At around age eighteen, she moved back to England with her recently widowed mother, Ellen.
At some point, Rolinda painted a portrait of her mother, and it’s an amazing depiction due to the elaborate dress and the artistry.
My guess is that Rolinda’s mother was astute in both art, motherhood, and business matters—and that the two women were quite close.
For me, that’s a happy ending.
