DISCUSSION QUESTIONS FOR “THE PATTERN ARTIST”
One review said this book is a “delightful story of people making their plans but ultimately God guiding their steps.....a story filled with dire circumstances and divine intervention.” Would you agree?
Did the author write in a way that made you want to continue reading....intrigued and interested in what would happen next? How?
What was your favorite “story line” in this book? Why?
How was Annie ahead of her time?
In Chapter 19, Mrs. Sampson tells Annie “Just be who you are, Annie. Who you are is enough.” Is that good advice, or bad? Explain.
How do you think the author did in interjecting Biblical truth into this story?
