Crow Lake by Mary Lawson

I'm really interested to hear your thoughts on Crow Lake. Did you like the book? Did you have a favorite character?

[Questions compiled from various book discussion guides.]

1. Guilt is an ongoing theme throughout the book. How did this feeling affect the children' relationships and the choices they made immediately following the death of their parents? How did it affect their adult lives? Who would you say was most stricken with this feeling?

2. Miss Vernon' stories about the history of Crow Lake suggest that some patterns can never be broken. How is this true and/or false for the Pyes and Morrisons?

3. What do you imagine happens between Kate and Daniel after the book ends?

4. What do you think would have happened to Luke if his parents hadn't died?

5. Would you recommend this book to someone else? Why or why not?
