Biography: 

After her globe-trotting experiences Joan Heppleton "from time to time" goes home for a visit, where she attracts the stares of the "neighbors, older people who had known her all her life," the younger people she had grown up with, and "newcomers to the town" (322). The narrative never says where "home" is (in Sanctuary we hear that Belle is from Kentucky), but it seems to be like Jefferson in the sense that Joan's obviously modern, emancipated behavior and appearance is something new and disconcerting.
