Autumn Thorns Book Club Questions

  1. What do you think of the first person narration?
  2. The book starts with advice for visitors to Whisper Hollow, is this a little heavy handed?
  3. The book starts with Kerris enumerating the signs that she ignored until the express letter from the real world tells her that her grandmother is dead, is this a good beginning?

  9. Who is your favorite character?
  10. So Kerris inherits a paid off house plus money from her grandparents and she is the spirit shaman which does not pay but is a lot of work but decides she needs a job too, does this make any sense?
  11. Were you at all surprised that Kerris’s mother, Tamil, was murdered?
