The story seems a bit quirky. Just some things seem a bit odd, unbelievable. The author does a good job of showing the relationships that a single victorian woman has with her family. It's all about the struggle she has choosing between the imposed obligations of her family and her own independence. I found some insights that I definitely could relate to. ( )

To my companions on the Rhine in the summer of 1977.
First words
"The luggage has simply been left on the deck," said the Reverend Charles Morrison.
"All her adult life she had lived in houses built of deep accretions of other people's lives. She had moved among them cautiously. But here, she might extend to the very walls and they would reflect back upon her, her plant , her sampler, things that were herself." p.63

"She pictured to herself those whitened cottage rooms where she might quietly extend herself, and moving from room to room, meet and recognize her self in forms unaltered by the pressures of others upon her." p.164
