Mrs. Edwards Character Analysis

Grant’s wife and Mike’s mom, Mrs. Edwards, is a stylish, middle-aged lady. Several years ago, she bought GrandMary’s clothing boutique and all of Grandpa Lorenzo’s antique office furniture. Daunis generally likes Mrs. Edwards, especially when Mrs. Edwards orders Daunis the perfect garment for Shagala: a revealing red jumpsuit. It’s unclear if she’s aware of Grant’s infidelity or not, but in the year after the novel ends and after Mike disappears, she and Grant divorce.
