Chapter 11, A New Tie to Life Summary and Analysis

Mr. Sands promises Aunt Marthy that he will take care of his children to whatever extent possible and that he will attempt to buy Linda.

Meanwhile, Dr. Flint is furious about Linda's pregnancy. He interrogates her concerning the paternity of her child, but to no avail.

Linda's baby boy is premature, and the doctor says that Linda will not live. Linda, who in the past had wished for death, now has, in her child, a new reason to continue living. The infant grows into a healthy and attractive child, but Linda is pained to know that he is Dr. Flint's slave and she is powerless to protect him from his fate.

Meanwhile, William is working as a medical assistant to Dr. Flint. He is so good at it that he soon becomes indispensable to Dr. Flint's practice.
