Through the welcome feast that the Kilongese throw at the beginning of the book, Kingsolver creates an impression for the reader that perhaps the Prices will get along with the natives; however, she shatters that possibility with the meal that follows. This first meal of the book is extremely important because it acts as a harbinger of events and trends that will occur in the rest of the novel. Before the actual food is revealed, Kingsolver has Rachel
The second is when the people of the glades go to Janie’s house for mirth and company. Both of these meals are symbolic as they show how men treat their wives, and both meals are acts of communion, good and bad.

The observations that Adah makes could not have been made by any other character in the book, this occurs because while characters like Rachel and Leah have changed throughout the book it has made them change about how they saw the Congo and made them acknowledge the problems they now face. Keeping Adah 's character mostly the same makes her a special character because while her family focuses on the problems they have such as no food while she is still observing the changes that go on because she can 't help due to her disease. Finally, Adah respect the writer of the poem because she doesn 't have much to do, but reading and talking about the poems bring her hope. The hope that she gets is about her managing to get to adulthood instead of dying young, this is why Adah explains why she likes William C. William.

Her mother extends hospitality to a stranger on her last day of chemo. Both short stories are written to a broader general audience.

The reason I believe having all of these plot lines do not make the novel feel “soapy” is the novel is not written like a soap opera where all of the family members’ secret lives are revealed to everyone in a dramatic matter, and then are reprimanded and shunned for their actions. While some of the characters knows of other characters’ deepest secrets, the only character in the novel who knows everybody’s stories is Molly, the narrator, and she does not judge her relatives for their

When she was a child she read many American and English books, about people, with whom she had very little in common. When she started to write stories herself, the characters were all white, with blue eyes, and were talking about things she never had identified with. But because she had only read books with characters looking like this, she thought that was how characters in books. The American and English books told a single story about the western people, just as many western medias tell a single story about Africa. She claims that many people in the western society know the single story about Africa.

In 1972 the couple relocated back to Cairns and opened the fine dining Georges’ Bistro in the converted Palace Theatre on Lake Street. Fresh Hibiscus and Frangipani flowers replenished daily by George 's devoted lady friends filled a huge fountain dominating the tropical decor. An instant success, the restaurant benefited from the free publicity occasioned on the 9th August when the wife of the chef’s assistant called in and shot him dead, which rather slowed that night 's dinner service. Neil Millar filled the kitchen vacancy, while Keith Holt took a job at front of house to cater for the increased business. Both Neil and Keith feature prominently in the gay
Women and men appear to have equal function: to provide and support their families. This differs that what was seen in Eatonville where women worked other women and performed mainly house chores.
