As she appears in the text:

“Jean Rhys and Ford met in Paris. Ford had the brilliant idea to invite her to live with him and his partner, Stella Bowen. He and Jean soon had an affair. In her partially autobiographical novel, Quartet, Jean named a character Heidler, a reference to Ford’s given last name, Hueffer. Ford countered with his own book, When the Wicked Man.”
