This is from GradeSaver. Should you wish just seven words consider, "Twenty-two-years old teacher at Hillsboro School."

Rachel Brown

Twenty-two-years old and "pretty, but not beautiful," Rachel is a second-grade teacher at Hillsboro Consolidated School. She loves Bert Cates and risks the wrath of her father, Reverend Brown, by visiting him at the jail and bringing him clothes for the trial. At first, she urges Bert to confess that he has broken the law and seek forgiveness. Brady calls her to testify against Cates and tries to twist her words to make Cates appear blasphemous. Rachel's belief that Bert is a good person and her desires to be a good person in the eyes of her townspeople clash, and while she is on the witness stand, her emotions render her speechless. Ultimately, Rachel realizes that ideas, like children, have to be born. She overcomes her fear of thinking and reads The Origin of Species. When Cates is released after the trial, she tells him she has decided to leave her father. She and Cates leave together on the train to start a new life.
