Petrus's Wife

Character Analysis

We're talking about the wife who lives with Petrus near Lucy's property – we know from Lucy's account that Petrus has either another wife or a girlfriend in Adelaide. Petrus's wife is quiet, pregnant, and doesn't speak English very well. When she does speak English, it is in a whisper; otherwise, she tends to point to things. We find out later in the novel that she is Pollux's sister.
