Salt to the Sea: 41. Emilia Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
 Emilia wakes up in the middle of the night because she has to pee. She observes her fellow travelers as they sleep. Everything is calm, for a moment, until Eva begins to scream. She had explored upstairs and found the Prussian family who owned the home dead in their beds.
Although Florian liked Joana enough to warn her about the carnage upstairs, he hasn’t integrated into the group fully enough to warn and protect all of its members from the grisly scene.
