Interesting mention of Addison’s mom, Margaret. When I met her face to face I’d have described her as being meek and timid. Prescription drug abuse wasn’t something I would have anticipated. On the other hand, Tom Barrow is described by Addison in a way that is not surprising at all. I met a man at the BOS event hotel who was intense, controlling, and angry. His wife cowered a bit in his presence. Not much of a stretch to find Addison describing her Daddy as hovering/over-protective.
@electrichippo I was a bit surprised by the reference to drugs, as well. On page 11 there is a comment about her mom being “drugged up.”
The woman we saw at the hotel did not appear to be under the influence of anything, in my opinion. Emotional, yes. Altered… no.
I wonder if this is something that took hold as Addison was preparing to leave home. Maybe it could even be a specific influence on that decision?
