What do you think of Stegner's narrative technique? He uses a contemporary historian to tell Susan Ward's story. Is Lyman Ward a reliable narrator? How would this novel be different if Lyman's own story were excluded? And since Susan Ward's letters are based directly on Mary Foote's real letters, does that change your perception of his narrative choices?
