Another thing I learn about relationships from this novel is that sometimes one should not be too trusting. Patrick thinks that the gold Sean has is his own as his family used to be rich and powerful. Marie, however, being more experienced, he realises that Sean probably stole the money. In the end, Sean is indeed arrested for murder and robbery. Patrick and Marie leave for America unharmed because Marie was perceptive.
Finally, the relationship between the English and Irish at that time was not very good because the English treated the Irish badly. This created a lot of ill feeling and mistrust. From this I learn that it is always good to treat people kindly and respectfully.
