A Good Hard Look is a great choice for book clubs: dramatic, multi-layered, and historical. The novel is set in the South in the early 1960s, so feel free to kick back with southern food and perhaps a cold mint julep while you discuss the book!
Themes of the book you can use to start a discussion include:
- How to live life well
- The power of forgiveness – both for yourself and others
- Grief and mourning
- Relationships between mothers and daughters
- Grace and redemption
