I just finished The Pilot's WIfe and the very last sentence left me perplexed. Kathryn is looking at the lottery ticket that she found in JAck's pants that lead her to his other wife, but why the statement I just wanted to know that the children are alright? It seems that it comes out of nowwhere. She didn't know there were children when she set out to go to London. She didn't even know there was another wife. What does she mean by this. I could see if she said I want to know, but she said she wanted...like she had done something already to find out. Any insights to help me understand this better?

I understood it to mean she was moving from anger to understanding...she was keeping a secret from her daughter,Mattie, in the name of love. Robert, who I expect will become a big part of the next chapter in her life, kept secrets from her, because he wanted to have a relationship with her and revealing the truth would have severed their relationship earlier. So she was moving to understanding, and perhaps forgiveness, understanding that the children are a part of the husband she loved, and her daughter's half siblings. She understood that in spite of pain, grief, betrayal, one still needs to have love and faith.hope this helps.
