Chapter 22

Summary

A widower, George Taylor, comes to Momma and tells her that his dead wife has come to him in a dream and asked for children. Momma tells Mr. Taylor that the dream probably means he should do something with children. As they talk over the dream,

Maya overhears their humorous conversation. She remembers the funeral of Taylorís wife. Maya had been forced to attend the funeral because the dead lady left her a yellow brooch.


Notes

This chapter presents death as a haunting, often frightening thing. Mr. Taylorís dreams are haunted by visions of his dead wife. When Maya overhears Taylor explaining the dreams to Momma, she recalls having attended Mrs. Taylorís funeral. It is not a pleasant memory for her.
