So? Did you make it to the end of Reconstructing Natalie? Alrighty then! Let’s wrap it up and post our thoughts on these questions:
- In the breast support group, Natalie meets and befriends a group of women, all very different from one another, who have this disease in common. Have you ever found yourself connecting with someone so different than you as a result of one shared experience? What lesson might there be in this?
- Natalie’s cancer and treatment compels her to rethink her life and, as a result, make major changes. Has your life ever done a similar about-face due to a life-changing event?
- Andy, Natalie’s neighbor and best male friend, is a rock for her throughout her treatment and yet, by the end of the book, their relationship has changed and grown into something deeper. Do you thank it’s possible for a man and a woman to be close friends without becoming romantically involved?
- Jane is a kind and loving example of someone whose faith sustains her even through the darkest hours. Do you have that same kind of faith, and would it provide you comfort and hope if you found yourself in a situation similar to Jane’s?
- Let’s rate it: How do you rate Reconstructing Natalie on a scale from 1-10 (1=horrific, 10=most excellent)?
Last but not least, what do you recommend for book #38?
