Y’all, the summer is almost over! I don’t know about y’all, but the past several weeks have been CRAZY for me!! I did manage to finish Rainbow Valley though and I thoroughly enjoyed it 🙂 How about some discussion questions?
- This book was totally centered around the Blythe small fry and their friends. Reading about their adventures in Rainbow Valley made me think of Anne’s days with the the Echo Lodge crew in Anne of Avonlea. It also made me think of Camp Laurence from Little Women, as well as sweet Betsy-Tacy moments. The innocence of childhood play is so lovely to read. Do you have any favorite Rainbow Valley moments? Did they remind you of other childhood moments from any other books?
- Montgomery likes writing about romance lost (Captain Jim and Lost Margaret) or almost lost forever (Mr. Irving and Miss Lavender). What would you have done in Rosemary’s place? Would you have kept your promise to your sister and refused John Merideth despite loving him?
- We’ve said goodbye to Anne’s childhood long ago. This book is a farewell to the sweet childhood of the Blythe clan. This always makes me sad. While being an adult is a wonderful thing in so many ways, childhood always calls to us in one way or another. What do you miss about childhood?
We’ve made it to August, dear Readers!! Remember, if you’re not caught up, don’t sweat it. September is a catch-up month (much needed for me!). I’ve got some other deadlines to meet so I will be catching up on discussion questions then. The Rill of Ingleside post will be up soon!
In the meantime, here’s the linky:
