Family pride is found all through this novel. From grandmother Adelia Chase's need to have the best and biggest parties at Avilion to Norval Chase's embarrassment at having sold out the family to the Griffens to Winifred's yearning to be the biggest "somebody" Toronto has to offer, family pride is at the root of all of that evil.
