Mrs. Higgins is a well rounded character in "All the Years of her Life." As a reader you get to see different sides of her personality. She at first comes across as calm and collected, friendly and devoted to her son, even though he keeps disappointing her. Once she and Alfred get in the car, however, the cracks in her strong personality start to show, and weakness becomes apparent. Mrs. Higgins, it becomes clear, though she may portray a exterior calm, is clearly fragile on the inside.
