her legal judgments, despite the situations that take her beyond her own preconceptions. Having kissed Adam, she chooses again not to answer a letter he sends her, and discovers too late that, suffering a relapse of his cancer after he turned eighteen, he refused a further blood transfusion and died of his leukemia. In the final pages of the novel, Fiona understands her “transgression,” as she calls it, in the following terms: through the law, she offered Adam something as “beautiful and terrifying” as a life beyond the constraints of his narrow upbringing, but she
