Why did the narrator eventually decide to move on?
(20-40 words)
Snapshots -chapter-2-The Address

Dear student,

The narrator revisits Mrs. Dorling to lay calm on her inheritance--a hoard of articles which Mrs. Dorling had taken from Mrs. S during the war for safekeeping. But, once amidst her inheritance, the things which constituted much of her past evoked in her a sense of alienation. Her mother's belongings, put to completely different use in Mrs. Dorling's house, were not evocative of the past which the narrator was familiar with. The narrator decided to return without any share in the claim, for the past she wanted to recover had long been lost and transformed. She decided to move on instead of holding on to the pain and angst of losing her mother's belongings.
