plot summary
Plot Summary
  • Elizabeth Minton has returned home to live with her older brother, Henry. Henry is very stiff, mathematical. He is very concerned with directions and punctuality; Elizabeth is not. On a routine walk along the ocean Elizabeth drops her broach pin into the rocky shoreline. The tide is coming in fast and strong and Elizabeth is worried the waves will sweep her pin away. She imagines Henry going onto the rocks to save the pin and a great wave crashing and sweeping him away.
