Following her grandmother’s death, Westover stayed at Buck’s Peak for about a week, despite Audrey’s efforts to keep her sister longer. “On the day I left the mountain, Audrey asked me not to go” (274). Though she does not remember how the conversation between the two of them went, Westover remembers making a journal entry about it upon her return to Cambridge. Audrey had asked Westover to stay to give her company. She also said Shawn was too strong and too persuasive for her to win him over. Westover, on the other hand, told Audrey that she was not alone as she had their mother. Audrey did not seem to understand Westover and, clearly, no one in the family did. Westover felt guilty about documenting the conversation and her “sister’s fears from such a safe distance” (Westover 274). On that night, Cambridge was less beautiful as she thought of the pain that Audrey was feeling.
