The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 8, Chapter 20 Summary

  • Trim continues telling the story that prompted the disagreement, about his own knee-wound. A young woman takes him in her cart and then brings him to her father's house.
  • Trim gives them a little money, and then realizes that the young woman can't be the peasant's daughter but is more likely a nun. She nurses him and he almost falls in love with her, but it can't actually be love.
  • The whole time she tends him, he never *******************. Both Toby and the hidden Mrs. Wadman think that's very strange.
