Shell ultimately chooses duty over love. He ceases communication with his beloved Joan and allows Mr. Gidharee to completely control his life from that point forward. The novel ends with wedding preparations being made for Shell and Rosalie as his future father-in-law reassures him that everything will be alright.

The next week, still very angry, Mr. Ghidaree asks Shellie to accompany him to his plantation. He gives Shellie a watering can to water the plants while he goes at the other end of the field to pick some fruit. He tells his dogs to stay behind. All of a sudden the dogs attack Shellie. He scream for help but Mr. Ghidaree doesn't come until the dogs are finished savagely biting Shellie. Then he explains to Shellie why he had commanded the dogs to bite him. Because Shellie had led his daughter on, defiled her and lied to her. And because he touched her intimately he has to break up with Joan and when his daughter is eighteen he will have to marry Rosalie. He agrees and Mr. Ghidaree takes him to the hospital. Weeks later, after working hard on the plantation, he is resting under a tree, looking at the green scenery and at the river. He realizes that this is the place where it all began.

Shellie is adjusting to a new and strange environment. When his parents move to a new village he meets new girls. He is charmed by an Indian girl Rosalie Ghidaree and is flattered by his friendship of her father, who tacitly accepts him as a potential son-in-law. At the same time there is Joan, who is more cheerful and accessible. Joan is staying with the Lammy family for Christmas vacation. The last day of Joan's visit Shellie takes her to the Ghidaree plantation to show her the beautiful scenery. Carving each other names on a tree, they leave the plantation.

Three weeks into the New Year Shellie father dies of lung cancer. Days later he goes to see Joan, but she isn't home. He sits under a cashew tree and accpets his friend's and Rosalie's condolences. His friends take him out for a drink. He returns home at three o'clock in the morning. Weeks later, he decides to stop working for Mr.Ghidaree and to quit school. He is now working at the cocoa-field to help with the bills and to take care of his mother. His mother doesn't have to work overtime anymore. Rosalie is very jealous of him and Joan, because he is spending a lot of time with her.

Shellie is invited to a school party. While he is dancing to slow music with Rosalie, he realizes that he still likes her. He then leads her outside and deeply kisses and caresses her. Now Rosalie assumes that he is going to break-up with Joan. She goes to her plantation and relaxes under the apple tree. While getting up she unconsciously looks at the apple tree. She sees Shellie and Joan's initials carved on the tree. She looks at it disbelievingly. She runs home and tells her father everything. How she let him kiss and touch her, how he led her to believe that relationship with Joan was over.
