Turns out that his finances were pretty dire because of loyalty to his employer. They make housing arrangement based on the children and that the widow is expecting another. Then Fleurette comes down with strep, is ill for some time, and lost her singing voice. Norma rules their world, Constance winds up as a store detective, and Fleurette comes upon a better paying position but the older sisters pitch such a fit that she moves out and away (but still in New Jersey). Then thing really get interesting! Another great read! Loved it! And I'm glad for the reality comparison at the end, too.
