The protagonist of the novel Agnes Grey is Agnes, the impoverished daughter of a minister. To make ends meet, Agnes takes a position as a governess for the Bloomfield family at Wellwood House. The Bloomfieldís are described as being wealthy and behaving cruelly towards Agnes. Agnes finds it difficult working at the Bloomfield residence as Mrs. Bloomfield often spoils her children and Mr. Bloomfield always finds faults with Agnesí work. To makes things worse, Agnes is not given any authority over the children, so it is difficult for her to control them. Before a year has passed, Agnes is told to leave and she returns home.
