In order to deal with this unhappiness, Mrs. Ramsay reads people as a way to feel close to them.

Mrs. Ramsay is one of the, if not the, loneliest character in To the Lighthouse. She looks towards her connections with her kids and husband as a path to take her away from that lonely feeling. When her kids and husband are happy she is happy.

I was emotionally touched by her mother’s sincere speech and started to protect her from those naughty fellows ever since.
