People of the Book: Discussion Question #5

October 13, 2009 by sdc

Discussion Question #5: Several of the novel's female characters lived in the prefeminist era and certainly fared poorly at the hands of men. Does the fact that she was pushing for gender equality  -- not to mention saving lives -- justify Sarah Heath's poor parenting skills? Would women's rights be where there are today if it weren't for women like her?

Please feel free to respond to this in the One Book One Lincoln Blog on the library's web site, or on the One Book One Lincoln Facebook fan page.
