She recognizes her husband of course! Being that he sent her to the colony ahead of him and never showed up to claim her, this is a very strange time for him to show up. That's the beauty of novels :-D. Even stranger is the fact that he motions to her to not reveal who he is............. her husbans is now Roger Chillingworth.
