I Love You Nora Whispered Character Presentation – Katherine

Author note: As a celebration of finishing my fifth novel I’m going to once a week for the next five weeks do presentations of characters from my newest novel “I Love You Nora Whispered”. It’s a story set in England during the 1940s.

First out is Katherine Waterhouse.

Katherine Waterhouse was the first character that popped into my head when planning this novel. Katherine was born 1923 to a British man called Simon Waterhouse and an Italian woman called Sandrine Waterhouse. Her older brother Leonard, lives far away and she thinks about him very seldom.

Katherine has a lot of anger and there is a discontentment in how she lives her life. At the age of 25 she still lives at home, unmarried, dreaming about the horses her father owns and trains. Her relationship with her parents is like a powder keg and even though Katherine doesn’t reflect a lot, I believe that some part of her knows that she can’t stay with her parents forever.

She doesn’t reflect on the fact that she isn’t interested in men or that she might be interested in women; she’s not interested in social interaction and dislikes people. All she cares about are horses and her dream of being the first female Olympian show jumper.

That is, until she meets Nora. 

When I was planning “I love you Nora whispered”, Katherine looked like the actress Sandrine Holt (see below) in my head just F.Y.I.

She looks a lot like her Italian mother but has her father’s height.
