Quote #10

"Come on," she whispered throatily. "Let’s get out of here. Makes me damned nervous."

Outside in the hot brightness of the street Brett looked up at the treetops in the wind. The praying had not been much of a success.

"Don’t know why I get so nervy in church," Brett said. "Never does me any good." We walked along.

"I’m damned bad for a religious atmosphere," Brett said. "I’ve the wrong type of face." (18.14)

Brett can’t take the contemplative atmosphere of the church—her own demons make her too nervous in such a setting. The "nervy" feeling she gets in church probably has more to do with her denial of her own unhappiness than with anything else.
