Quote #10

Oh yes, Sally remembered; she had it still, a ruby ring which Marie Antoinette had given her great-grandfather.

But going to Bourton had meant so much to her – had kept her sane, she believed, so unhappy had she been at home. But that was all a thing of the past – all over now, she said. (6.103)

Sally recalls when she pawned her jewelry to get to Bourton that summer. Bourton was a totally different world – one she would never forget.
