Several elements from the original story have been changed: in the novel, Vicky and her family knew about her grandfather's condition the entire time, she had an older brother, her younger sister was much older and prettier, there was a third boy she was interested in, the plot element about drift nets was entirely absent, and her parents were present during the whole trip at the grandfather's house.

You wrote something that's very comforting
The universe is part of this one cry In this strange land where all are born to die, Each tree and leaf and star shall have, The universe as part of this one cry. That every life is noted and is cherished, And nothing loved is ever lost or perished.'
You, you understand.
