" Mauriac portrays Brigette Pian as a "good Christian woman" who believes herself to be righteous and noble. The rest of the world sees her as she is - spiritually in ruin, dominating whenever she has the opportunity, and narrow-minded. She is, however, sincere in her pharisaical behavior. She is certain she is doing God's will as she controls those around her, from her husband Edouard, to her stepchildren, her neighbors, and people she might call "friends." If anyone dares to balk at her ministrations, she verbally - and loudly - offers up to God her "sufferings" in the midst of the tension."
