Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
There is a little bit of foreshadowing in the chapter when it comes to Claire and Mrs. Cunningham. It’s clear that Mrs. Cunningham doesn’t like Claire all that much right now, but there’s a chance that a bond can be formed. Claire thinks that it could come from the state of Mrs. Cunningham’s garden, but it will come from another way.
I do find myself wondering about the gem. Why would that just be lying around on the ground? I really wish I could remember more of the later stages of this book to remember if this comes up again. There’s just too much of a blur, especially with recently rereading other books.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I would love to see this chapter used in some sort of way. I want to see the conversation about Christmas. This is a new beginning on the Ridge for Roger and Bree, and I’d love for them to bring their traditions as well as honoring old ones. Celebrating Christmas as more than just a religious festival isn’t going to do a lot of harm. After all, the English did celebrate it.
I would also like to see more of Cunningham. He does play a bigger role in the book, and I could see him playing that role in the show. There should be time as elements could be combined.
