Character Role Analysis

Mrs. Ruth Wilcox

Mrs. Wilcox serves as a kind of spiritual guide throughout the novel, and her ghostly presence is oddly more important than her short-lived physical one. She is the inspiration for Margaret's philosophical ponderings, and her spirit of acceptance and love for everyone is the guiding light in the long, dark night of this novel.
