Chapter19: Amyís will

Summary

Amy has a rough time at her auntís house although the elderly lady doesnít mean to be harsh. She gives Amy numerous chores with very little free time. During those short respites she goes riding with Laurie and, under the watchful eye of the maid, explores the house, examining and arranging her auntís wardrobes and jewel cases.

During one of these sessions, Esther asks Amy which piece she would choose for herself if she could. Although she first selects a string of gold and ebony beads, Esther tells her that Aunt March has already declared that Amy will get the turquoise ring. This prospect gives Amy the courage to endure her auntís discipline. She becomes a model of obedience and creates a prayer room for herself where she goes when she needs additional fortitude.

The concept of Aunt Marchís will and the worry over Bethís survival inspires Amy to create a will of her own. She promises something to everyone with one of her most precious possessions going to Jo because of the burned book episode.


Notes

Amy is either not as self-centered as she has seemed at times, or else she is capable of making great personal sacrifices if there is the possibility of arriving at a desired goal as a result.
