Edie is both eager for and rather innocent about romance. She is quite proudly aware of her blossoming womanhood, and the day after the plane lands, Edie gets the impulse to dress herself up in Mrs. Peebles is out for the afternoon.
I felt for Edie because I know she really liked Chris and it made me sad for her when Mrs. Peebles and Alice accused her of being a whore. I think Chris was the first man that gave Edie a sexual fulfillment she had never had before, similar to the way the tinker fulfilled Elisa in "The Chrysanthemums.
I liked what she said about allowing people to believe what they wish to believe in order to make them happy. I think this approach might have come about as a result of mistakes she had made earlier in her life perhaps the one with Chris that resulted in conflicts, something she now wants to avoid.
The social issue I found to be most prevalent in this story is the issue of unrequited love.
I really do think that Edie was in love with Chris, but I was also proud of her for accepting that the letter he promised her he'd write was never going to come and moving on. I wasn't able to sense for certain whether Edie ended up truly happy in her life with her husband and children, but I think that her past experiences developed her into a very smart woman.
