A Stone for Bread by Miriam Herin
If your book club would like a personal interview with Miriam, you can set this up several ways:

    • with a voice phone interview.
    • by sending her written questions for an e-mail response.


Suggested questions for discussion:

  1. What do you think of Henry as a character? Is he a weak man? A man made vulnerable by the poverty of his childhood? A man trying to find himself in a new environment?
  2. What about Rene? Why do you think Henry was so fascinated by him?
  3. Henry was very much in love with Eugenie. But how do you think Eugenie felt about him? How do you think she affected his life?
  4. If you could meet one of these characters, which one would it be?
  5. How did you feel about Marcotte by the end of the novel? About Henry? About Rachel?
