The Lovely Bones

The Lovely Bones

by Alice Sebold

Grandma Lynn

Character Analysis

Lynn is Abigail Salmon's mom. She's a hard drinking, hard flirting, fashion conscious lady who comes to the rescue after Susie's death, keeping Salmon house and just plain being there. Without Lynn things would have been much harder for the Salmons. She also earns endless brownie points from Susie for recognizing Harvey as her killer at Susie's funeral.
