At the nunnery in Denver, the nuns take an instant liking to Clara, who tells them that she was raped  by a mysterious stranger. They dislike Ida, who's pretending to be Clara's sister, and put her to work  doing tedious chores. Ida is so busy with chores, and Clara is so sequestered by the nuns, that Ida  doesn't even see Clara until after Clara gives birth (on August 10) to a baby girl. When Clara  mentions that she's thinking of giving up the baby for adoption, Ida threatens to expose Clara to the  nuns. Clara allows Ida to care for the baby. Ida and the baby, whom the nuns name Christine, return  to the reservation; Clara stays in Denver. When Ida and Christine return home, Ida learns from Father Hurlburt that Pauline is now living with a  different family because her parents argue all the time. And Lecon is drinking heavily. He is  disappointed that Clara didn't return with Ida and Christine.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
