Oh, I'd missed that, astrangerhere. I know I had (later) received the impression that Hargrave was potentially violent, but Hattersley I thought had been portrayed as one of the less offensive.

While Arthur Huntingdon's abuse is not given as physical, I did get the impression that this might have been editorial choice, if you will. That a book of this sort could not actually portray such violence directly, and be published, so perhaps Anne deliberately left out the violence, leaving the reader to read-between-the-lines.
