Disclaimer: I am new here, and all my facts might not be true. Hence, please verify them before you note them down. Thank you in advance! The story is set in the post War times in Holland. The narrator, after the War, returns to her motherland with nostalgic retrospections. She remembers her mother, and the 'address' she told her to spare a thought for; it was Number 46, in which resided the Dorlings. The narrator reminisces how the old lady, with whom she just had an interaction with, used to pay her mother visits when she was but a girl. Every time she came home, she took away somethings claiming to be antique during the peace situations. Much to her horror, her priced childhood possessions which, at present, are indeed antique, were just stuffed in a room. All her tries to forget this incident were in vain. Thus she decided to forget the address, because of all the thing, that would be the easiest to forget. As we can see, of most things that grabbed the author's attention, and of all things she remembers, the address was the most significant. Her childhood memories too were, mostly, of the old Mrs.Dorling. She couldn't handle the misery of her possessions being mishandled, even after knowing the fact that they were antique and unique. She couldn't pretermit it out of her memory except for the address. Thank you for the read!
