The Awakening Chapter 6 Summary

READ THE BOOK: Chapter 6
  • Edna is changing. She’s becoming more attuned to her position in the universe as a human being.
  • This is, needless to say, rather confusing for both us and Edna. This change caused her meltdown a few nights ago.
  • The chapter ends with two sentences about the sea, and how the sea speaks to the soul.
