Livinginthecastle I read the book quite quickly, and so something vital may not have gone in. What does the line on page 276 mean?
'...Mr Mckindless, the man I knew as Grieve, was captured forever.' Who was Grieve? I can't be bothered to go through the whole text looking for a reference to him. Thanks for you help :-)

Sarah Grieve was the old man Rilke saw while visiting in the hospital, the one who claimed he was McKindless's gardener.

Ta very much. :-) It was such a long time ago now that I can't remember very much of the book.




Andrew Just read the book, so a bit of necroposting!
He's also introduced to us early in the book, burning stuff in the garden whilst the sister is explaining the job to Rilke before he looks round. Sister says he's the gardener. Helps to tie threads up at the very end.
