Which memory is most painful to Granny as she reviews her life?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

The memory that was most painful to Granny was the day she was jilted by George "...since the day the wedding cake was not cut, but thrown out and wasted."  Granny, Ellen, felt like the world had dropped out beneath her, "there she was blind and sweating with nothing under her feet and the walls falling away."  On that day she felt as if she was in hell, and now when she thinks of him "the thought of him was a smoky cloud from hell that moved and crept in her head."
