Moon Over Manifest Chapters 33-35 Summary
The Jungle, August 11, 1936
Abilene is sitting in her bed, wondering about the last memento from the box: the key. Where does it fit in the story?
She hears harmonica music and goes outside to find Shady playing for some guys by the train tracks.
He was handing out coffee and helping them out as best he could.
Abilene realizes he
been drinking all this time. Turns out he comes home all tired out and with bloodshot eyes out because he's helping these homeless dudes all night.
She thinks of her daddy and wonders if he's thinking of her.
Remember When, August 12, 1936
Hattie Mae has gotten a ton of responses to her contest. Abilene, Lettie, and Ruthanne read through all the entries, and it helps Abilene fill in Miss Sadie's story with more details.
It's pretty funny stuff—you should totally check it out.
Finally, Lettie finds the one with handwriting matching their note. It was Mr. Underhill, the undertaker.
They assume he must be the Rattler. (Dun dun dun…)
Miss Sadie's Divining Parlor, August 23, 1936
Abilene runs all the way back to tell Shady, but he's not there, so she runs to Miss Sadie's instead. Track star.
She breaks the news, but Miss Sadie's too sick from her infected leg to react.
All she says it that it was all a myth—and then she launches into her story again.
