Still waiting on Joy’s baby, Lovie and the narrator do yard work together. Lovie reflects on her past dream to work in Alaska and reminisces about her mother and the songs she used to sing, including the ballad “Barbry Allen.” On Sunday the narrator reluctantly accompanies Lovie once again to church, where the narrator enjoys watching Lovie interact with a baby. Back at Lovie’s, Lovie wants to figure out what contemporary nation the Medes (mentioned in church earlier in the day) occupied, and the narrator spends half the day in her room, desperate for time alone.
