Gillespie Annual Christmas Letter

The annual Christmas letter sent out each year by Angela Gillespie is a central symbol in this novel. The letter sent the particular year in which the novel is set symbolized Angela’s decision to tell the truth about each of her family members. It was upon this letter and the fact that it was accidentally sent out to all of the people in Angela’s mailing list that a good deal of the action of the novel hinged. The letters written in the past years were used in two different aspects. In the first, the children used the letters to put together a play they hoped would remind their parents of the good times they had in their relationship. These letters also helped Angela to remember the facts of her real life after she was diagnosed with amnesia.
