    • Opening Narration: I will never forget the first time I took a girl to a motion picture show. Her name was Sarah, and she lived on the other side of Walton's Mountain in a little backwoods hollow, and what happened was more astonishing to me than anything I could have imagined if I had tried to write a story about such an innocent pleasure.

    • Closing Narration: I was not to be the husband that Sarah wished for, but we remained the best of old friends into our adult years, and when I think of her now, I remember those pebbles we tossed into the pond that day, and how the widening circles touched and intertwined reaching out together toward the far shore, like a family who's love touched another human being and helped carry her to the far shore of womanhood.
