Cast of Characters
Col. Kenneth Penmark - A good looking officer, in love with his wife and completely smitten with his little girl Rhoda. He is blind to the events that occur while he is away for work. (M- 30-40)
Christine Penmark - Pretty, gentle, gracious woman, dedicated to being a good wife and wonderful mother. Her life is given meaning by the affection she gives and receives. She learns that her world famous father is her adoptive father, and that family secrets may have given birth to an evil she cannot accept. (F- 30-40)
Monica Breedlove - Widow, intelligent, voluble, and perhaps overly friendly. She is smitten with the Penmarks, and a gossipy know-it-all. She is fascinated with Rhoda, showering the child with gifts and being
Emery Wages - Monica Breedlove's younger brother, plump and friendly, though much quieter than Monica
Leroy - The Groundskeeper/Janitor of the Apartment building the Penmarks and Breedloves live in.
Miss Fern - Rhoda's teacher. She is the one who first makes Christine aware that something may be off
Reginald Tasker - A friend of the Breedloves who writes detective stories and has made himself a minor expert
Mrs. Daigle - The distraught mother of the deceased Claude Daigle, who was drowned at the school picnic.
Daigle - Husband of Mrs. Daigle, also distraught over the loss of his son, but far less interested in his wife's method for getting answers. Rather embarrassed by her actions. (M- 30-45)
Messenger - Messenger carrying the good news and bad out of the Penmark home. (M- 20-30)
Richard Bravo - Christine's father, later we find he is in fact her adoptive father, and the manner in which he adopted her is rather a secret in and of itself. Handsome once, somewhat stern and weary now. (M- 50-60)
