She loves and cares for Lily and could never hurt her. She fits in well at the Boatright house, becoming a good friend to the doomed May. Originally, Lily felt she was better than Rosaleen because of Lily’s prejudices, but she comes to see Rosaleen as an amazing and gutsy woman.
How old is Rosaleen?
Like a lot of the novel’s other characters, Rosaleen is a little quirky. Her exact age is unknown because she doesn’t have a birth certificate, so she either tells people she was born in 1909 or 1919, depending on “how old she felt at the moment” (1.77).
