RA Character challenge
26.) Most Interesting Story
Even though it’s a tragic story, Sparkhouse was one that kept me engaged (I liked North & South too, but you could tell where that one was going rather quickly). The puppy-love story of Carol and Andrew, how he was going off to University and all the uncertainty and fear that came with that. Been there done that, minus the abusive father and boyfriend’s disapproving parents, thank goodness! though my future MIL did try to get me to break up with her son so that he could “experience college life”.
How John, the awkward farmhand, suffered in silence with unrequited love
(my middle name in adolescence could have been “unrequited” )
but when the chips were down who was there? John. Full of gentleness and understanding but still with plenty of that endearing awkwardness, though it was now mixed with a mature confidence that was rather enticing.
Roles between the former young romantics became switched, Crazy girl passed on her title to University boy when he let jealousy consume him and ruin his home life.
Meanwhile John was the safe haven, stalwart and true.
Ugh! That man!
I just want to cuddle up to those awful clothes forever ❤
