Annie Graham's mother Ellen was a difficult woman. In the last years of her life she suffered from dementia which aggravated the relationship with her daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren. Besides, Annie had been suffering from her mother's pressure for all her life. She wasn't completely free of Ellen's suffocating influence even after Annie's marriage and the birth of her children Charlie and Peter. So, when Ellen died, Annie felt no bitterness but only relief and emptiness. Annie's daughter Charlie was the only one who really missed her grandmother.
