This chapter details the events in Iris Barry's life in 1957. After their move to town, Iris and Pierre survived on her pension and a small income derived from his work fixing up old houses for possible sale. When these prospects dissipated, they turned to work Pierre had done before—selling antiques. On March 29, 1957, her friend Chick Austin died of lung cancer at age 56. After Chick's death, there was no assurance of commissions to continue work on the Austin house. Iris and Pierre decided it was time to build up their antiques business. After Austin's death, his widow, Helen, turned to settling his affairs. She looked into the house in Fayence through a local attorney named Marquand, who was conversant with French property laws.
