Hello again and welcome to Day 6 of our Secret Garden book club discussion. Our conversation about this wonderful book is nearly at an end but I hope you all had fun reading and chatting about The Secret Garden with us.
Today’s discussion questions are about Colin’s parents. Mrs. Sowersby says to Colin. “Eh! dear lad!” she said. “Thy own mother’s in this ‘ere very garden, I do believe. She couldna’ keep out of it. Thy father mun come back to thee—he mun!”
- Is Colin’s deceased mother’s spirit present in the book? Where and when do you sense it the most? Who does she employ as her “agents” of goodwill in the book?
- Why do you feel Mr. Craven has avoided his son Colin so? In the end, is he worthy of Colin’s forgiveness?
Thanks for stopping by and I will see you again tomorrow for the final day of our book club discussion.
