This chapter describes the period immediately following the death of Sarah's father, John Faucheraud Grimké. His death had a profound effect on Sarah. Her sister, Angelina, was by now fourteen. Sarah drew closer during this time to the lure of the Quaker religion. She spent a few months in correspondence with the Quaker Israel Morris, and she eventually started attending Quaker meetings in Charleston. Sarah fell in love with Israel Morris after the death of his wife in 1820 but the love was difficult for her to deal with.
