Chapter 24 Summary
Undine has returned to Paris. She is with one of her only remaining friends, Indiana Frusk. Undine had met Indiana while she was in school. They were not friends then, but now Undine has taken up company with her since learning that Indiana, who is married to a wealthy man named James J. Rolliver, is friends with Peter Van Degen. Peter has lost interest in Undine, and Undine wants him back.
Indiana is telling Undine that she should have come to her earlier. Indiana would have given her better advice concerning how to go about getting a divorce. She would have saved Undine from all the problems she is having now. Indiana would have told Undine to get her divorce long before Undine actually pursued that action.
