Chapter Three Summary

Will doesn't understand why his mother and Aunt Loma aren't happy that Grandpa Blakeslee is getting married. Grandpa Blakeslee needs someone to look after him, so his engagement is a good thing.

Will hates being in mourning. This entails refraining from "fun" activities such as fishing, reading the funny page in the newspaper and camping. Will's father, Hoyt, arrives home to tell Mary that her father has left in his buggy with Miss Love to go to Jefferson to get married. Will listens quietly to their conversation, as Mary confides her fears to his father.

Mary also compares her father to Loma. Loma had wanted to become an actress, but Grandpa Blakeslee wouldn't let her. To spite her father, Loma married Campbell Williams instead. Loma and her father still don't talk to each other a lot because of it.
