Book 2: Chapter 7 Summary

Tom continues on at King's Lorton, where Mr. Stelling's school is located, for a full five half-years, and Maggie goes to a girls' school with her cousin Lucy. Tom is sixteen now and tall and no longer awkward. Any friendship between Philip and either Maggie or Tom is not possible with the lawsuit going on between Mr. Tulliver and Pivart, who is represented by Philip's father. Maggie, at 13, has grown tall also and now wears her hair braided and coiled.

Maggie goes to King's Lorton to give Tom the bad news and to tell him that they will lose everything-the mill, the land, everything.
