Finishing Up The Snow Child & Starting What Alice Forgot

I found The Snow Child to be a breath of fresh air. It was a nice story and made you feel like I was experience the story in real life. I really enjoyed every single page of this book. I was a bit sad with how it ended but I was expecting it at the same time. What did you think of The Snow Child?

Here are a couple questions about The Snow Child. Let me know what you thought of the book. :)

1. When Mabel first arrives in Alaska, it seems a bleak and lonely place to her. Does her sense of the land change over time? If so, how?

2. Why are Jack and Mabel emotionally estranged from each other in the beginning of the novel, and how are they able to overcome that?

3. How do Esther Benson and Mabel differ in temperament, and how does their friendship change Mabel?

4. The first time Garrett sees Faina in person is when he spies her killing a wild swan. What is the significance of this scene?

5. In what ways does Faina represent the Alaska wilderness?

Our next book is What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty. We will be starting it Monday October 10th and ending it on Sunday October 23.

Synopsis From Goodreads: Alice Love is twenty-nine, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child.

So imagine Alice’s surprise when she comes to on the floor of a gym and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over — she’s getting divorced, she has three kids and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time. She has to figure out why her sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that she’s become one of those super skinny moms with really expensive clothes.

Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over.
