    Summary

    She was Aunt Therese just like Abby was Aunt Abby, but every touch and stolen look told Rindy that Therese had never been just like Aunt Abby, would never be just like Aunt Abby. No, she was something entirely different for Carol Aird, something alive and precious and utterly alien.

    Summary

    'Therese looked and saw, in the light that spilled from the house, a tear, like a shooting star, on Carol's cheek.' An album of scenes - across various locations and months and years - between Carol and Therese, rather like Therese's photo album in words. (Now incorporates two fragmented plotlines about Therese and her work and Carol and her Rindy, and how the two converge, or separate.)

    Extra scene: A new day 'In New York (February 1959) II'.
