There was her walking stick, bobbing on the surface, evidence of the unthinkable act. After an excursion up the Amazon, Rachel contracts a terrible illness that plunges her into delirium and then death. She reconsiders her memory of Mrs and Mr Ramsay, balancing the multitude of impressions from ten years ago in an effort to reach towards an objective truth about Mrs Ramsay and life itself.
