In Fire and Hemlock, Edna is a pleasant, friendly, talkative woman who helps run a hardware store -- Thomas Piper Hardware -- in Stow-on-the-Water. Leslie Piper, whom she adores, is her son.
Edna is also a character invented by Thomas Lynn and Polly, the stingy, nosy, bullying sister of Thomas Piper; she dotes on and spoils her son Leslie. She wears her hair in curlers to save money, and refuses to let her brother have money for books.
