Hello everyone! It’s a gorgeous spring day here in NY but before I head out to enjoy the sunshine and chat with any friendly robins who may stop by, I wanted to post today’s book club discussion questions.
- What do you think of Dickon? How does all the nature imagery used to describe him and his uncanny way with plants and animals impact the way you view the character?
- How do you think his background as a “common moor boy” makes him different from Mary and Colin?
- In spite of his class and the fact that his family struggles to make ends meet, he is the happiest and healthiest of the three children. Why do you think that is?
- Do you think that Mary and Colin could have found redemption and happiness in the garden without Dickon?
Missed a day? It’s not too late to share your thoughts on our earlier posts. You can see them here.
