It was pointed out to me on Saturday that last week there were no questions for the book club. My oops. What was scheduled to go out did not release, because of internet problems here at work I didn’t check it Friday. Sorry.
So we will have the last of the questions this week and do a new book next week.
So what did you think?
Do you understand their family better now? Have you ever had a situation like this in real life? A family that tries so hard to keep a secret that keeps bubbling up. I have and yet I can’t seem to make them see that if they would just get it out in the light and let it heal things are better and easier.
My mother worked with women who were abused as children. I use to talk about it to different people just because they asked what she did. One time a woman asked my why anyone would want to remember and then work through the situation. Why not let the past be the past. At the time it didn’t strike me as a big deal, in fact my answer was kind of the standard “That way they can get rid of its power of them and their families.” A few years later I found out she joined one of the groups and is now healed and living a very normal and wonderful life.
Interesting how fiction can teach us so much.
