The River Between Us Chapter 7

By Richard Peck

Chapter 7

  • Delphine can't seem to help standing out in a town like Grand Tower.
  • The attention the men pay Delphine irks some of the women, and three of them climb the hill to the Pruitts' house to make their feelings known. Oh, good…
  • After they insult Mama, accuse Delphine and Calinda of being spies, and talk about how inappropriate it is for Noah to live under the same roof as Delphine, Mama orders them out of her house.
  • Delphine comes home excited about a showboat that's coming to town, and Noah comes home angry at the rumors swirling about Delphine.
