The tadpoles and the terrapins had led directly to the study of developmental biology, and eventually to a fellowship at her old Oxford college, St. Hilda's. After twenty-seven years of teaching, Helen had retired gladly, but it had been a mistake. She should have foreseen it, that retirement wouldn't suit her. She should have guessed that from now on she would have no life outside her own unhappy home, and no self but as Mrs. Johnny Farfrae.

Perhaps there had been thousands of freshwater crabs of the species Dilocarcinus pagei cristatus scuttling in the dry holes of the island in the River Parana in Argentina when Darwin was there in 1833, but this was the one his hand had picked up, it was the one that had come home from his fabulous journey.

So instead of a house they had been given a small set of rooms in the Besse Building, right in the middle of Keble College on Liddon Quad. Mary busied herself with unpacking, whistling softly, while Homer collapsed on the bed in a stupor and fell asleep at once.
