Tobin therefore suggests that such subtle personal relationships and sensitive feelings are what make the difference with Eilis and help her carve a substitute home characterised by commitment, devotion and passion. We are reminded that familiarity can help to overcome sadness. Eilis accompanies Tony and his brothers to a game of the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field which is representative of her increasing exposure to and involvement in American culture. After all Tony is so enthusiastic about baseball that he wants “our kids to be Dodgers fans”. Tony’s and Eilis’s joyful trips to the cinemas and Coney Island (during Summer) allow Eilis to bask in a substitute sense of comfort and together, they make plans for a “much better life”, built from the ground-up. The block of land on Long Island, which currently consists of bare land, waste ground and scrubland, symbolises once again the opportunity to establish a new life that they can “plan .. themselves”. They can have the fifth house with its own garden, nestled on a block surrounded by his brothers and parents; Eilis knows that these plans are akin to a marriage proposal, and she does not resist as she “held his two hands and pulled him towards her”.
