30. Which two of Delia's family members come to visit her while she is in Bay Borough?
From Quiz 'Ladder of Years' by Anne Tyler
Answer: Eliza and Carroll
Delia is the youngest of three sisters; Eliza is the oldest, and is into alternative medicine and reincarnation, while Linda, the middle sister, is a divorcée with a thing about French culture (hence her twin daughters being named Marie-Claire and Therese). Susie is the oldest of Delia and Sam's children, then Ramsay, then Carroll. Eliza - who made a comment about Delia being a cat in a previous life in the missing persons report, much to Delia's annoyance - comes to visit her a few weeks after her disappearance, and tries to get Delia to come back with her, but Delia refuses. The children, Linda, Eliza and Eleanor, Sam's mother, all send her birthday cards after Eliza gives them her address. Much later, when Delia is working for the Millers, Carroll comes to visit, to warn her that Eliza is coming on to Sam. Delia insists on taking him for lunch, but Carroll storms out when he finds out Delia has a new life and new friends and is, as he puts it, 'ensconced'. Ramsay gives Carroll a lift in, but does not talk to Delia.
