A Beautiful Ending

"'No, I don't think I do, really... I just thought I did. But he didn't believe in me. He didn't know I was innocent.' She looked at Calgary. 'You knew! I think I'd like to marry you.'
'But, Hester, I'm years older than you are. You can't really-'
'That is- if you want me,' said Hester with sudden doubt.
'Oh, I want you!' said Arthur Calgary."

(This perfect scene- which makes much more sense and is much more beautiful if one has read Ordeal By Innocence by Agatha Christie- ends a fantastic book by having dynamic characters do dynamic things, and shows that even relatives and friends being murdered can bring people together. Let us all hope it does not come to that outside of literature.)
