This question contains spoilers… (view spoiler)

Bah Yes, Gemma is right. The lady who comes in is Abilene, because she has his pocket watch, and so many years have passed. Go back and look through the book. Count up how many years the author says have passed. It has been a while. The little girl is Abeline's daughter. She calls Abilene "mother" Sorry this is a spoiler and I forgot to mark it as one!
Gemma It's Abeline's daughter. You know because the mother that comes in has the pocket watch. So many years have passed that she's had a daughter of her own.
