I can't give you a whole study on Miss. H but I can coment on her. Miss. H is a strange, wrinkled up lady who never sees the sunlight and never gets out of her bridal gown. She's actually a very cold hearted, yet wealthy, lady who lives just outside the village in a the Satis House. She wanted to manipulate both Estella and Pip to ultimately ruin their lives. Miss. H wanted to others to feel the sorrow and pain that she feels from being jilted at the alter and having to remain alone. She felt that inflicting sorrow on Estella and Pip would somehow placate her own emotional pain.
