Point of View

The novel is written in the third person point of view. The writer has used the omniscient point of view to allow the reader to not only see the action of the plot through her characters' eyes, but to also allow the reader to hear their thoughts and feel their emotions. The point of view of this novel is often that of the two main characters, Philippa Palfrey and Norman Scase. On occasion, the narration is seen through the eyes of Philippa's adoptive parents, Maurice and Hilda Palfrey. On these occasions, the author writes through these two characters to give the reader a better sense of how they feel about Philippa and her recent actions as well as to allow some insight into the reason Philippa feels as she does about her adoptive parents and her biological mother.
