4. After Elinor tells Anna her secret, what do they spend the day doing?

5. What new plan does the rector want the townspeople to undertake?

Essay Topics

Essay Topic 1

Think about Anna's relationship with Lib Hancock. What telltale signs does the author show of their confidence in one another? How is that confidence broken? Is it ever truly mended? Why?

Essay Topic 2

Think about Anna's father, Josiah. What events in his life have taught him to be a cold, callous character? How does his treatment of Anna estrange him from her? Do you think he deserves mercy for his actions? Why?

Essay Topic 3

Think about the rector's internal struggle. After Elinor's death, he no longer believes in God, and denounces all his actions leading up to his relationship with Anna. Do you think he regrets his treatment of Elinor? If so, does Anna have good reason to be repulsed by him? If he vows that he is a changed man, that he has shed all of his papal learning, should Anna still judge him for his previous acts? Why?
