Forced to stay with her father's relatives while he is having heart surgery, Emma comes in contact with jealousy and spitefulness on the part of an adult for the first time. Aunt Bea's behavior often seems to have no explanation -- not from her husband, the gentle Uncle Crispin, from Emma's father or even from Aunt Bea herself.
