Do you think Chambers ever asked Roxy who his father was? If so what do you think Roxy would have said/done

I would think that Chambers would have asked that question as he grew up. Roxy was scared that the truth would come out, so I think she would have told him who the real Chambers father was. This protects her from anyone finding out quite as easily. She knew that she could get in big trouble for what she did and she was intelligent enough to wrap up most of the evidence of the crime that she could have realized existed. She would not be foolish enough to let the false Chambers know too much.

It doesn't matter if she would have told him who is real father is or his new fake one. It's the same guy, or that's what we're led to believe. So she can't pick one out to make her son look better. She didn't switch fathers, she switched mothers.

Any child who is without a parent will ask questions and as a mother, I think that Roxy would have answered in the least painful way she could. I don't think that there is a way for there to be a painless way, but there are certain ways that one can cover up or forget or lie through an ordeal such as the questioning of a child. She may have never said anything at all. There are ways to distract a child and make them forget altogether for a short time that the question was even asked.

I think Chambers did ask Roxy, and she came up with a way out of answering, because that is how she did just about everything else. She always had a way out of a jam!
