Sarah Bunting

Sarah Bunting

Village schoolmistress Sarah Bunting immediately reveals her independent spirit when she meets Branson at a political meeting in Ripon. Proud of her Socialist views, she makes bold and prejudiced assumptions about Branson when she learns of his marriage and position at Downton. She is eager to cross swords with him about the aristocracy, but will her spirited efforts to engage Branson heal or hinder the lost, grieving widower? She could be a worthy match, helping Branson to rediscover his passions and place in the world, but she could just as easily bring him down by making him feel like a hypocrite and an interloper.
