I like your interpretation of that moment with the PB&J, Allison. When I read it, I actually got distracted from the book because I couldn’t stop thinking about what consequences might result from leaving a piece of plastic in mid-18th-century Scotland. What would whoever found it think about it?
As for Frank, I feel like he was addressed in another thread somewhere here (haven’t figured out yet if there’s a way to search the forum, as opposed to Terry’s blogs). But maybe it’s time he got his own thread. I’m gonna start one now.
