2. Isobel believed that affairs were wrong, yet she was complicit in Jack & Cathryn's affair. How was she able to reconcile her beliefs and her actions?

3. What were your impressions of the friendship between Isobel and Cathryn? How did their friendship affect each of them?

4. How did the setting and time period affect the story? How would it have been different if set in a contemporary setting?
