Rhoda Llewellyn is a character from Ian Fleming's short story Quantum of Solace in the 1960 collection of short stories For Your Eyes Only. Fleming may have based her on Marilyn Monroe as she definitely has a similar image and likeness to her.

History

Rhoda Llewellyn was an airline hostess who travelled all over the world. During one flight she met a man named Philip Masters, a colonial office employee who was on his way back home to London from Nigeria. The two instantaneously fell in love and married shortly afterwards. The two moved to Bermuda, where Masters worked as a diplomat.

After their marriage, Rhoda became bored and initiated a very public affair with the eldest son of a prominent Bermudan family. While her husband was gone, the governor's wife Lady Burford scolded Rhoda who ended her affair. When Masters returned, Rhoda seemed penitent and wanted to start anew. However, Masters was not too forgiving. He took the outlandish step of dividing their house in half so the couple would not need to speak to each other, an unthinkable action before the affair.

After Masters returned to England without her, Rhoda discovered that Philip had left her penniless with no income nor saleable property. Eventually, she gained sympathy from the community which had shunned her during her affair and she later received passage to Jamaica by way of Lady Burford and worked as a hotel receptionist until being met by a millionaire from Canada who married her.
