Lily does find relics of her mother in her attic: a small bag containing a photo of Deborah, a pair of white gloves, and a small wooden picture of a black Mary with “Tiburon, S.C.” scratched into the back. Lily writes T. Ray a note and leaves with T. Ray running after her. Lily ponders where she will go after she meets Rosaleen, and she concludes that she must go to Tiburon. They are picked up by a melon farmer in a truck. Once they get out of the car, Lily explains that they have traveled to Tiburon due to Lily’s hope that she would find someone who knew her mother.
