Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
Myra watched us both tensely, but I knew that however hard she listened, she was bound to miss the point.
be bound to miss the point = be doomed to fail to understand the important part of something
Yes - that's fine. Or 'She was certain/sure. . .' rather than doomed.
