“It’s their armour,” he thought, “their defence against the unknown, and their defiance of it.” And he understood for the first time the earnestness with which May, who was incapable of tying a ribbon in her hair to charm him had gone through the solemn rite of selecting and ordering her extensive wardrobe.

Good book (although I’m worried it’s not going to end well).
