Tonight's book club will feature Julia Spencer-Fleming's IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER. Questions for discussion will be as follows:

1. What kind of a person is Clare Ferguson?  Is she a sympathetic character?  Is she well-suited to be a clergyperson?  Would you want her at your church?
2. What sort of person is Russ?  Is he a sympathetic figure?
3. We are told quite a lot about Miller’s Kill, the town in which this novel is set.  What do we know?
4. Is Miller’s Kill’s youth problem any different than any other small town in North America?
5. What do we know about St. Alban’s Church?
6. Did you find the building romance between Clare and Russ well-integrated into the plot of the novel?  
7. To what extent is the novel about the romance rather than about crime?  Are the action scenes well done?
8. Does Clare lead Russ on?
9. Are there any aspects of this novel that surprise you or strike you as unusual?
