This paper discusses how the heroine, Frankie Adams, of Carson McCullers' "The Member of the Wedding" is primarily defined by her familial relationships. It looks at how Frankie seems ostracized from what is left of her biological family, even though she is not consciously aware of this fact. It concludes that Frankie learns that family is not particular to brothers, fathers, or mothers, but can be found within the hearts of anyone who cares enough to listen and understand her needs, thoughts, and feelings.
