SparkNotes: Never Let Me Go: Character List

the go between characters

When Marcus gets sick, Marian has the opportunity to talk to Leo privately, and she asks him to deliver a letter to a young man named Ted, who works on a farm near Marian's house, and Leo agrees because he likes Marian so much. Her recollections express her nostalgic longing for the past, as well as her fierce desire to hold onto the memory of her childhood friends Ruth and Tommy. Told from the perspective of Leo Colston, a callow 12-year-old middle-class boy, the story starts when he is invited by upper-class school friend Marcus Maudsley to stay at his elegant family home for the blazing hot summer of 1900.
