It's pitch day for our winter 2024 Read With Us selection, The Poisonwood Bible by…
Dear readers, the day has come to discuss our summer Read With Us selection, Sorrow and Bliss by Meg Mason. I read it so long ago that I needed to do a bit of a refresher in order to write this post. But here we are . . . and here are my questions for you.
I want to know what you think of the characters in this book, in particular Martha, but also Patrick and Martha’s extended family . . . Aunt Winsome, her mother Celia and father Fergus, and her sister Ingrid. Do you like them or dislike them? Do they feel like real people or stereotypes? Would you want to hang out with them? Do you see them as being supportive of one another?
I’m not going to respond to these questions here but I am looking forward to reading your answers in the comments and hoping to talk about them more tonight in our Zoom session.
