Sarah’s Key: Chapter 79 Summary & Analysis

Julia keeps herself busy, working and meeting new people. She has trouble sleeping, dreaming often about Paris and “the horrors of the past.” She also finds herself constantly thinking of William’s eyes and face.
This chapter illustrates how obsessed Julia has continued to be with the past, and with William. This seems to be due to a mixture of guilt over having dropped a bombshell into his life, and a sense of attraction to William.
