This chapter illustrates how Eunice idolized her older sister Lucille, who seemed more like her mother than Kate did. Kate was working twelve- and fourteen-hour days cleaning houses on top of her church duties, so it fell to Lucille to teach Eunice how to dress and wear her hair. She walked her to school and talked to her about boys; one or two of them always were around seeking Lucille's company—and Dorothy's, too. Four years older than Eunice, Dorothy was pretty and spirited in her own way. Temporarily defiant when her mother and teachers vetoed her plan to wear a strapless gown to a school function, Dorothy consented to wear a borrowed dress whose poofy sleeves were tasteful yet still met her sense of style.

Keywords:   Eunice, Lucille, Kate, church duties, strapless gown
