The peripheral characters in this novel are, to me, very sad. There is a fervent search for grace on the part of Julia's and Sebastian's mother that eventually cripples both of them. Charles is the catalyst for a deeper understanding, which comes and goes in often confusing interactions. I think the novel is reflective of Waugh's own conflict about religion.
