Character Analysis

Sal’s second wife that he marries in Part V. She is supposedly the woman he was always been looking for, but we never get to see in her the real soul connection that Sal has been seeking all the way across the country. Her only dialogue (aside from their meeting) is in regards to Dean – she feels bad at Sal’s inability to help his friend at the end of the story.
