Abigail admits to Lindsey, simply, that she lied to her. A look passes between them, and Susie thinks she sees the secret of Len. For Abigail, responsibility is a burden rather than a calling. She feels guilty for this in some ways, especially when her children greet her at the airport and the mood is tense and hostile. Her children are angry with her for leaving them and for leaving their fragile father. Using simile, she compares herself to an hourglass that tells time —the time she had alone is limited by her attachments that are now pulling her back. I really can't say if forgiveness is in order, it's such an intense personal situation.
