Baker's Secret (Kiernan) - Discussion Questions

Discussion Questions
We'll add publisher questions if and when they're made available; in the meantime, use our LitLovers talking points to help start a discussion for The Baker's Secret…then take off on your own:

1. Out of the many, many books about World War II, is there anything in this onr that stands out—the character of Emma, perhaps? The treatment of the townspeople by the Nazi's?

2. What do you think of Emma? In what way is she an unlikely heroine? What skills does she possess that end up making her so effective as a resister? Would any of us have been so brave?

3. Talk about the other characters—Monkey Boy, Guillaume, Uncle Ezra, and the Monsignor—and the roles they played. Any favorites?

4. Vergers is a small village, where everyone knows everyone else and is aware of all the comings and goings. Is that closeness a boon or a danger to those involved in undermining the Nazis?

5. What about Michelle and her love affair with the German soldier? Was the price she paid fair…or too steep?
