Winter’s Bone: Chapter 31 Summary & Analysis

At home, Ree takes two kinds of pills and spends the day in bed. Harold and Sonny return home from school and announce that they have “more snow days.” Ree watches as snow piles on the windowsill, then takes another pill and waits for sleep to come.
Winter lingers outside while Ree convalesces. With every passing day, Ree’s wounds heal, but the revocation of her home and land draws closer and closer.
