How the author ends the story
“Straight across the hills it was five miles from John’s farm to his father’s. But in winter, with the roads impassable”

“you'd wonder how he could have missed the buildings. It was the wind last night, coming every way at once. He shouldn't have tried.”

Human vs self
"She must control herself - be sane like Steven. For comfort she let her hand rest a while on Steven's shoulder. It would be easier were he awake
now, with her, sharing her guilt; but gradually as she watched his handsome face in the glimmering
light she came to understand that for him no guilt existed. Just as there had been no passion, no conflict." (page 12)

Physical Appearance
"Year after year their lives went on in the same little groove.”

What she thinks, dreams and feels
"It was something of life she wanted, not just a house and furniture; something of John. But John of course couldn´t understand.”
“Sometimes they did sleep late, sometimes they did play cards, but always uneasily, always reproached by the thought of more important things that might be done.”

“Sometimes she asked herself , why sit trying to talk with a man who never talk?”Why talk when there was nothing to talk about….”

What she does, does not
1. “You’re doing too much. Get a man to help you, just for a month.”

2. “You said yourself we could expect a storm. It isn’t right to leave me here alone. Surely I’m as important as your father.”

How Ann describes John and Steven
(flat characters)
1. Steven
“Boyish face with a peculiar kind of arrogance…he was tall, erect, and square shouldered. His hair was dark and trimmed, and his young lips curved soft and full”.

2. John
"I'll tell Steven to come early," he said,
as he went out. "
