The Road to Ever After
When Davy is discovered sweeping his angel pictures by Parson Fall, his time beneath the tight control of Brownvale is over. Brownvale is decaying.The empty movie theatre is juddering to a standstill, the library is closed, while the townspeople are pinched and wearied.
Mysterious Miss Flint offers him a route out, as her chauffeur to the white house by the sea, shown in her picture. There is some strange similarity in this action to an angel painting that fascinates Davy, yet in that, his comparative picture is as a warrior. Davy does not consider himself a warrior.
