This chapter I’ve found extremely visual – I could picture the cold light, the snow, the awful home for the ‘feeble minded’. I’m still wondering what on earth these people are thinking? Is Caroline planning on returning the baby to the doctor? Why hasn’t he rung ahead and warned them of Caroline’s arrival?
Also, it’s intriguing how bad weather can alter three peoples lives … What would have happened if Phoebe was born in a hospital?
