      I haven't read it in 30 years. I honestly can't remember how it ends.
      I just remember her earnest attempts at perfection, her uncle being
      younger than her, and things like trying to write with the old-style
      pens without making any blots to spoil her pages. It's more the
      atmosphere I remember. I can't recall the plot at all.
