September: The Mrs. Mystery

Maureen says, "Mrs. Amberson, Scarlett's eccentric boss, never explains the 'Mrs.' part of her name. Any theories on who she might be married to, if she is married at all?"

Follow up: Have you ever known someone who went by a title (Captain John! Countess Elizabeth!) that didn't seem to have any official meaning?

Ooo. I guess I thought she was formerly married and now a widow. But maybe I'm not remembering?

I haven't known anyone who uses a title. Well, except the rgz divas. :~)

Dr. Jefferson Jefferson. First name "D" "r" "period."
Paper Towns reference. :D

I always assumed she and her husband had had a falling out, or she went by "Mrs" because she thinks it has some sort of societal advantage.
