Do you belong to a book club? Do you love to read and discuss what you read with people who think a bit differently than you do?
Story Chat takes about a minute to read. Then you make a comment, which takes about forty-four seconds – that’s about the average stay for one person on my site. (I know it’s pathetic, but it is what it is. You guys are fast readers and I post a lot of pictures.)
So here it comes, a sweet love story with mother problems – dead mother problems. And then Hugh Roberts steps in to comment, and trashes the poor lady! (With good reasoning – trust me) Now there’s a debate going on in Story Chat, and even if you don’t usually read Story Chat, I want you to weigh in.
“As soon as I knew that Evie’s mother was dead and that she was hearing her voice in her head, mental health problems came to mind. Probably because I recently listened to a radio show about people who hear voices in their head and how it’s often connected to mental health. It makes me wonder if Ted is indeed a lucky man having married Evie? And (according to her mother’s voice) hadn’t she strayed from a marriage once before? Whist I condemn violence of any kind, is that why Reverend Derek had hit her when he found out that Evie had been unfaithful?
Looks like I’m going down a different path here and thinking Evie is beating herself up for the person she really is.”Hugh Roberts
