We had a lively discussion over this book. (SPOILER ALERT) We speculated about the true nature of the relationship between Caroline and "Father". And why he is never named. And whether or not Caroline was following in his footsteps--will she also abduct a child? Most of us could not live the way she did. We wondered what really happened between the Father and Susan. Mostly we were glad Caroline had found a way to live out her life the way she wanted, although we hoped she wasn't going to make poor choices and we wondered if things were really going to work out for her. Most of us would not recommend this book to other readers, but we think Peter Rock has an incredible interesting imagination and we had a great discussion!
