Vera is very judgmental. Beatrice Taylor was a servant of Vera's and Beatrice was pregnant. She only worked for Vera's family because she was in need of a job since she was kicked out of her own house, she was young and pregnant.
A fictional island of the coast of Devon named Indian Island. The story is set in the 1930s.
The group has to stay on the island as they wait for the boat to arrive. It hasn't arrived in days as they were told. So the remaining people must wait.
Thought Of Dying
In each room, there is the same childhood poem. This poem contains people dying or becoming hurt but it is seemingly just a cute poem in each room. Vera later finds out that they are living through the poem on the island.
After each death, another china figure goes missing on the dining room table. For the time being, it's still unknown why but I believe it has the same effect as the poems.
