While reading the book I remember thinking that the idea that having a baby out of wedlock as a sin is still the way some people think, we haven’t really come that far as a people in that regard. The novel is almost wholly narrative so if that’s not your thing (and it really wasn’t mine) probably best to get the cliff notes.
