They then start talking about Paul and Molly, names they are thinking about for their children-to-be. Chapter Fifteen VOCABULARY contemplating – considering, reflecting, mulling over pastoral – referring to the country; peaceful 1. What is Vivian’s background? Vivian is originally from the town of Free La Cove. While she was away at college, she had met a dark-skinned man and married him. Her family was very upset and rejected them both immediately, and their first-born shortly thereafter. Vivian never even took her second child home to visit. She is presently separated from her husband, who has left the area, and she is waiting for a divorce to come through as she supports her two young children by teaching school. 2. How do Tante Lou and her friends react upon meeting Vivian? At first, they are guarded and reserved. Grant’s aunt tries to embarrass Vivian. But Grant stands firm, and Vivian demonstrates her good upbringing and her strength. By the end of their visit, the relationship has warmed up, especially since Vivian is a woman of religion and his aunt calls Vivian a “lady of quality.”

    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.
