Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

This novel takes on two time periods; the present and the past. In both, however, servants are far inferior to the owners of estates. Discuss this servant/master relationship as it is portrayed in the book. Does Setterfield remain neutral on the subject? In other words, does she merely present facts or does she write about this relationship in such a way to approve or disapprove of this kind of dominant/subservient relationship?

Essay Topic 2

How is understanding family history helpful in understanding an individual? Winter says to Margaret that individuals are part of their family's story. Do you believe that an individual is so marked by his family or by the past events of a family that he or she is trapped by this background? Can a family so mark a person that he or she cannot change? Discuss this question as it relates either to Vida Winters or to Margaret Lea.

Essay Topic 3

Discuss the repercussions of the bad parenting for the Angelfield children. George doted on Isabelle but ignored Charlie. The bad parenting continued in the next generation, as Isabelle, too, neglected her children. Write about the bad parenting exhibited at Angelfield, and the effects this had on the many affected characters.
