Okay, I had meant to talk about Charlotte this week. It is her book, after all. But I have no discipline. I’m dying to know what you thought of Penelope, and I didn’t want to wait another week to ask. Charlotte, being a patient sort, will have no problem waiting until next week to be discussed.
So this week’s Night Jasmine Book Club is open season on Penelope. Anything goes, so long as it’s Penelope-related.
Just to get us started, what did you think about Penelope’s behavior in Night Jasmine? Her relationships with Henrietta and Charlotte? And do you think she and Tommy Fluellen could ever have had a chance together? Does she have a future with Freddy Staines?
