Salt to the Sea: 144. Emilia Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Emilia cannot get the image of the burning, sinking wreath out of her mind. She tries to call out to other women to get their coats and evacuate. She knows she and Joana must move now, or risk getting trapped below deck, either by waters or the densely packed, panicked passengers.
Although she had temporarily been optimistic about the future, Emilia wonders if the burning and sinking of her wreath means that she will die on a burning sinking ship.
