i can't imagine marcella as anyone except sebastian's sister!!!
she's soooo lovely, intelligent, kind, supportive, and caring, she just wouldn't do as a sister to that pondscum ivan, at all....
she also plays the perfect character role that sebastian drastically needed...who would be his main support system otherwise??...he has no parents, basically no wife, (well, one that counts, anyway..lol!!!), corrupt and dishonest cousins who are totally selfish and against him from the get-go, and only one true love interest....i don't think i'd like the book at all!!!...marcella's role is extremely important and more appropriate as his sister!!!..
