Book Club Discussion Questions:

1. Which of the “sisters” do you relate to the most? Why?

2. What did you enjoy most about this book? The characters? The friendships? The history? The inspiration and achievements?

3. Some readers may find themselves frustrated with Kath who refuses to leave her husband despite him moving out and maintaining a relationship with another woman. Other readers may find this true to the time period. What was your reaction to Kath’s situation?

4. How did you feel about the Miss America pageant playing a role in guiding this book through different time periods in history, phases in life, and the characters’ struggles?

5. Brett’s gloves were an outward expression of the masks that women (and people!) wear. Did you feel gloves were a good representation or an overly obvious representation of a troubled past and present insecurities?

Have more questions about the book? Feel free to post additional questions in the comments section.
