Excerpt from Chapter 13

Excerpt from Chapter 13 that highlights Alice's estrangement from her New England environment

. . . It was the harpsichord which Alice Pyncheon had brought with her from beyond the sea. The fair Alice bestowed most of her maiden leisure between flowers and music, although the former were apt to droop, and the melodies were often sad. She was of foreign education, and could not take kindly to the New England modes of life, in which nothing beautiful had ever been developed. (Chapter 13)
