jul 21, 1944 - Orleanna's first pregnancy
When Nathan returned from war he was embarrassed that Orleanna was pregnant. He blamed the pregnancies on her flirtation with him. Nathan believed that God was looking down on him for having a family. "Nathan was made feverish by sex, and trembled afterward, praying aloud and blaming me for my wantonness" (Kingsolver 198).
