Salt to the Sea: 26. Joana Summary & Analysis

The group of refugees is growing more and more skeptical of the Poet’s claim that there is a manor nearby. As the group begins to complain, the Poet spots the manor through the trees and they march toward it.  
Although the Poet could travel alone, and keep the mansion and its potential treasures to himself, he wants his travel companions and friends to enjoy a night of comfort with him, even if they are rude and skeptical.
