In the concluding chapters of American Spy, Wilkinson presents Marie’s experiences, from her trip to Ghana till the time she got to Connecticut, where the incident presented at the opening of novel took place. This incident made Marie return to Martinique with her sons. However, Marie would leave her sons with her mother at Martinique while she goes to America to find and retaliate against Ross.
“I hate that I have to leave you. Going to find Ross, having to do him violence, might take me away from the most revolutionary work I could do,” she says (289).
