...she has some trouble fitting the Emersons into the rules
And the Emersons, who most certainly are not playing by the accepted rules of the little British society in the pension Bertolini, are carefully pushed away until no one associates with them.

Is Lucy's confusion partly due to her fear of breaking the rules, then, even when she isn't sure what the rules are?
