I am reading The Longest Ride. The use of preposition in one sentence made me ask this question here. The sentence is -
My mother told me about these visits with Ruth and their worries.
The use of "with" here suggests that "my mother" visited somewhere with Ruth, right?
Now I am going to give the context quoting some lines from the previous texts -
'But I had also became friends with your mother in the year you (Ira) were gone (for schooling elsewhere). While my father was working, my mother and I would go to the shop. We would speak of Vienna and our old lives.....' Ruth was saying this to Ira, looking back to their younger days. Now Ruth and Ira are married and too old.
Now I just want to know why "with" is used their in that sentence? It should have been "from" or "of", right?
