Also a book that contains some "appeared bad, but actually good" people,
although not in quite the direct way of some others.  Here's it's more
"was perceived bad due to cultural bias, but isn't really any better or
worse than anyone else".

Astrid in 8 Days of Luke might be an example ... David even admits to 
himself that he was just lumping her in with the rest of his relatives.

Barnabas in Dark Lord of Derkholm was bad, but seemed friendly/good.

Tacroy in Lives of Christopher Chant was complicated ... he seemed
good, then bad, then good again.
