Due to the nonexistence of a higher authority or family member at Bly, the governess in the Turn of the Screw by virtue of Victorian society was the primary caretaker of the children and the household. The information the prologue provides about the governess depicts the predisposition that she could be vulnerable as she is a “flattered anxious girl … With no previous experience”. However, she may be in awe of Harley Street and the grand estate of Bly, overwhelmed by her surroundings, she may not necessarily be too frightened to tell her story reliably. James’s style of writing in the novella creates room for the readers to view the governess as frightened and vulnerable whilst on the other hand certain and confident. The governess’s adoration of the uncle after visiting him at Harley Street and her belief that he needed her reflects the governess’s naivety.

Not all stories of “Cinderella” in the real life can have happy endings . In most cases, incomplete family brings bad influence on the form of good moral quality and manners of children.

Cinderella's father remarried, and once remarried, Cinderella's new step-mother ruled the house. She made Cinderella sleep in the attic and do the hardest chores in the house. The oldest step-sister was the rudest, where as the youngest step-sister was not. The two step-sisters went into a frenzy when they were invited to a ball by the King's son. When they asked for Cinderella's help, she helped them even though they teased her about not going to the ball.
She had to show up at the ball, be charming and smooth, and win over the prince. Of course she had help along the way, but ultimately it was up to her to make the fairy-tale ending happen.” It takes dedication, hard work, and a strong will to beat the odds.
