In 1859, Simon dissects the events of the murders. In 1842, Grace begins her job as a servant for the Parkinsons. There she meets Mary Whitney, a passionate and determined young rebel. They are visited by Jeremiah, a charming peddler who reads Grace’s palm and gives a dark yet optimistic prediction of her future. Mary confides in Grace that she has become pregnant (by George Parkinson, the son of the household, who refuses to marry her). When Mary dies from a back alley abortion, Grace enters a coma-like state from the trauma, waking days later and suffering from identity lapses, confusion and hysteria.
