1. Kit discovers within the opening pages of The Ruby Brooch that she was not who she thought she was and she was very angry and hurt. When do you think a child should be told he/she is adopted?
2. In the mid-1800s, women had few rights. As stories of free land in the west circulated in the east, men decided to pack up their families and risk a dangerous six month journey to own free land in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Women often had no say. They packed their belongings, said goodbye to families they would never see again, and headed into the wilderness to birth their babies and follow their husband’s dreams. As a child, I remember my father moving us from Virginia to Kentucky after he accepted a call to preach at a young church in Louisville. I remember my mom’s sadness. Many years later, my husband accepted a new job in Philadelphia. I cried for weeks over that move. Have you ever had to relocate in follow someone else’s dream?
3. Our pets are beloved members of our families. Have you ever had to leave a pet behind, knowing it was the best decision for the animal, but it broke your heart?
4. Have you ever walked through a dark season of life and thought it would never end? Where did your courage to continue come from? What did you rely on to see your way to the end?
5. Kit’s birth parents made life decision for her that she found frustrating. Has anyone ever made life decisions for you? Did you resist or go along with the plan? How did it turn out?
