Salt to the Sea: 159. Emilia Summary & Analysis

This chapter is only three sentences. Emilia thinks, “The knight. He had the baby. I knew he’d be a savior.” 
Although Emilia is stranded on a raft with no way to steer, facing down probable death, she is happy that her baby has survived, and happy that Florian is more than a fantasy of a savior; indeed, he truly saved her child.
