This week, book club leader Liz has a few questions based on roughly Chapters 8 – 16. Feel free to use these as a jumping-off point for any other thoughts or questions you may have too.
Hello! Here’s one of my favourite apple pie recipes, from Nigella Lawson’s “How to be a Domestic Goddess”. I made this for my birthday! http://www.food.com/recipe/double-apple-pie-337431
- What do you think of the shifting character perspectives? Do they roughly align with one was introduced at the pool in the opening scene?
- How does Sam feel about Mary Ann? Does he care about her, or an idealized version of her?
- Why doesn’t Danielle enjoy cooking? She is obviously a gifted cook, but grates at being identified as a cook or maintaining a farm. What does this say about her perceived place in her family, versus what she wants?
- How is Melina, the babysitter, reflecting Mary Ann and Alice’s paths to adulthood?
