"The Island"

This was a short story written about 1952 about a houseful of women and a boy literally locked away from the world. I have reread this story at least 4 times and I just don't get the ending. Can someone shed some light on this for me, please?

Thanks

This story sounds a bit like "Jack-In-The-Box"; although the 'several women' you refer to turn out to be - well, I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't read it...

I've never seen "Jack-in-the-Box" under any other title. Can you describe the ending of the story you remember?

Ive read a story about a boy locked away from the world but it was called "The Shadow Children" and it was because of a two child limit.
