This chapter examines Estelle Oldham's experience as a wife at the Schofield Barracks in Hawaii during the period from September 1918 to May 1919. It explains her husband Cornell Franklin never really learned to care because he was so ambitious and discusses Estelle's realization that while her husband's demands and desires mirrored those of her culture and her parents, they were not hers. This chapter also mentions Estelle's impending reunion with William Faulkner.
