And sometimes, when they don’t, they can turn out just a little bit better.” (p. 155) Conflict Man vs. Self Josie: “I was wrong, I thought to myself. I honestly believed it. Not because Sister Louise told me or because she made me believe that I was. I knew deep down that I was wrong.....(p. 185) “I began to realise that it didn’t matter what others thought about what was right and wrong. It only mattered how you felt and personally I could be with anyone of any profession if their personality was like Jacob’s.” (p. 190) “ Suddenly I began to cry but I think I cried more out of relief than self-pity. Relief because I was beginning to feel free. From whom? Myself I think.” (p. 221)
