It never occurs to her that all the others think she is crazy. In fact, with each passing day, things are becoming clearer and clearer.
“Samantha, love,” her mother whispers, “please put those books away. There is nothing in them for young ladies such as yourself.”
Samantha has become skilled in ignoring her mother. The books hold the answers to all the things she wants to know – about love and sex and travel and adventure and the world. They are the windows that open her eyes to what is outside her house.
She never hears her younger sister and cousins, gossiping from the porch, that Samantha has completely lost it and will soon be put away.
It is when she discovers the book of ink blots that the world becomes clearer. It is then that she can see the meaning behind each on, the beauty that they possess.
While Samantha’s eyes are opening, while things finally begin to make sense, the rest of the world knows that she has gone insane.
