“What characters would you like to catch up with?”
This was such a fun question to ponder as I revisited the books I’ve read over the last few years. There are so many characters I’d like to catch up with but if I had to choose just one, it would be Dellarobia Turnbow in Barbara Kingsolver’s Flight Behavior.
Dellarobia, a young wife and mother feeling trapped and restless in her life, witnesses what she believes to be a miracle; an entire mountainside covered with the fluttering, flame-colored wings of monarch butterflies. The event draws national attention and exposes this small farm town in Tennessee to different ideas about life, education, and science. In the end, Dellarobia plans to leave the farm with her children to pursue a college degree.
Where is the smart, ambitious Dellarobia and her children today? How have their worlds changed? I would love to hear her story.
Now it’s your turn.
