Vivian and Kay clearly had some kind of relationship or connection during the war, as seen through Vivian's great anxiety in returning a plain gold band to Kay in 1947. What do you think this connection is? What's the deal with that ring?

Have only read Chap. 1-3.
I feel that Kay lost her great love during WWII - it is not clear how. I believe that ring is a symbol of that relationship. Somehow, I am under the impression that Viv was attacked, maybe raped. Viv makes a statement that she was very grateful to Kay, but that by remembering Kay, Viv remembers a horrible time.

I think Kay feels lost in the first three chapters. Vivian has found her love in Reggie. I also believe that Kay may have lost the love of her life. Vivian seems quite reserved with Reggie in these first three chapters but she is in love.

I have now read the first 3 chapters of 1944 and know that Viv becomes pregnant I think that this may hold a clue to the ring conundrum as in Kay somehow found out and gave Viv the ring so that she could obtain an abortion because single women were not supposed to have sex .

gypsysmom, that's what I think, too!
