I actually find Lucy pretty immature through a lot of the story. She strikes me as being only about 16 or 17. Honestly the women in this story as a whole seem kind of immature. I wonder if that is a comment on the way Victorian Society stiffled growth in women or if Forrester just didn't like 'em all that much.
Immature, yes; but I think there was always an undercurrent in her character that promised greater potential growth in the future, perhaps seen most clearly in her attitude whenever she played Beethoven.
