Lucky Rock

Isaac carries a lucky rock through the early part of the novel. It comprises a small stone with a snail fossil imprinted into it. When he and Christine must see each other less, and then not at all, Isaac gives Christine the lucky rock to hold onto. It is a small piece of Isaac that Christine is able to carry about constantly. It serves as a physical reminder of his love for her.

Tablecloth

A tablecloth is used by Christine and Isaac to burn their initials, and the date, into, during a secret meeting in a communal business cellar after they have decided to one day be married. They hide the tablecloth, and determine that it will be used at their wedding. When the novel ends, Christine retrieves the tablecloth, and it is intended that it will now be used at their wedding reception.
