      Mrs. Fairley spies on Sarah and reports to Mrs. Poulteney what Sarah does and where she goes on her day off.

The convoluted contrivance is amply justified by introduction of existentialism and a truly inventive multiple endings by which the author leaves a huge scope of interpretation for the readers and critics.
