Welcome to week 2 of my Read Along, I am so glad you are back or joining us.
A quick recap as to how this all works, answer the questions below, for each correct response I will enter your name for a chance to win 1 of 3 prizes (a handmade item, a PBS Credit or a $5 Gift certificate from Amazon). You have until Monday January 23rd to answer this set of questions.
Leave your answers in a comment with a way for me to get in touch with you.
This week for the handmade prize I have a set of 6 of my Glittered clothespin magnets the colors were inspired by the book cover. To go along with that I have a copy of one of Carolyn's other books "Godmother The Secret Cinderella Story" and a German fantasy postcard circa 1918 called "Temptation"
1. What was Gregor's Mermaid experience?
2. What is Margarethe's plan to stop the war?
3. What name does Prince Christopher choose for Lenia and why?
4. What does Lenia's life line look like and who reads her palm? What is special about her?
5. How did the southern King tell his son about the marriage to Margarethe and how did Christopher react?
Bonus: What did Lenia do with the necklace her sisters gave her from the Prince's Shipwreck?
1. Last week Jenny asked "where do you think the book is set? I.e. what are the north and south kingdoms, or are they completely factious? At first, I thought the setting was Scotland (north) and England (south), based on physical descriptions and history of rivalry, plus the islands Christopher was looking for could easily be the Shetland Islands or Scandinavian ones. As I read further along, I don't think it's really important to the story, but I was curious to see if anyone else pondered this."
2. When Gregor told Margarethe about his mermaid experience did you have a moment where you thought he maybe talking about Sybil? Do you think this was the authors intent?
3. What is your opinion of Prince Christopher at this point? Do you think he took advantage of Linea or do you feel like much of this is her fault because of her decision to become something she is not?
