"Ted never really knew who he was supposed to be. He’d been taken away from his real father, and then taken away from his grandfather Cowell, whom he loved and respected. He could not, would not, use Johnnie Culpepper Bundy as a role model.
I think his feelings toward his mother were marked with raging ambivalence. She had lied to him. She had robbed him of his real father, although rational consideration shows that she had no choice. But half of Ted was gone, and he would spend the rest of life trying to make up for that loss.”
