The traumatic experiences that they went through in the…

I have read that whoever with the name Lucy, will always bring anything they start to completion. And I think this description fits the character Miss Lucy in Never Let Me Go. This chapter is mainly about Kathy's reminiscence of Miss Lucy, there were several flashbacks (of course, all in different time and place,…
