Good morning No. 3 Book Clubbers! Hopefully you’re still hanging in there!
Wow! Was this week’s reading intense or what?!?
Was anyone else confused about Johnny’s fishing expedition with the kids? I really felt that was a random way for Johnny to go about displaying his desire to be a better father.
I think the piece in this week’s reading was the scene featuring the young mother, Joanna. Francie’s internal struggle with how the women in Williamsburg treat Joanna and how Francie views Joanna is a true insight to Francie’s character. This scene is a turning point on how Francie will forever view women and how she will build relationships with other women going forward.
The other scene that sticks out is Francie’s realization that her English teacher really only wants to hear pretty things and not real things. Francie is insulted when the teacher describes her real-life writing as sordid. This is also a huge defining moment in Francie’s young life.
What sticks out the most to you from this week’s reading? What are your reactions to our story thus far?
