I think the women in the play are strong forthright individuals who must carry the burden of the males in their lives. Nervous and suspicious, Mother (Kate)has taken on the burden of her husband's secret while he presents the face of an untroubled conscience to the world, while she suffers from headaches and nightmares. Ann Deever is an honest, down-to-earth girl, and she is emboldened by the strength of certain of her convictions. The beautiful Ann has not become attached to a new man since her beau Larry died in the war. Lydia is a former sweetheart of George's, but she did not wait for him to return from the war.
