    Ada was in love with her piano. Right from the beginning Alistair makes the mistake by leaving the piano behind. Had he gone back for it maybe it would have made a difference. Baines took his place in Ada's heart. Baines is stranded for romance as he does not want a local woman. He connects with Ada before the husband has a chance.
