  1. In the Bible, a name change bears notable relationship to a life transformation (e.g., Saul to Paul, Abram to Abraham). What significance does Tammy Lynn's name change to "Tami" bear?
     
  2. Compare and contrast life in Powell Station for Tammy Lynn with life in Savannah for Tami. What are her support systems in each? How are those lives different from her life at school at the University of Georgia in Athens. Where is she most alone?
     
  3. Are all the standards of Tami's family faith as hard and fast as she believes? Discuss times when her parents were more flexible than she had thought they'd be. Discuss instances in which Tami makes allowances in her beliefs. Is this hypocritical or part of maturing as a believer?
     
  4. Is Tami judgmental? Does her character evolve?
     
  5. In what ways does Zach's shared background and beliefs comfort Tami? Likewise, how do their dissimilarities challenge or frighten Tami?
     
  6. How do Vince's and Zach's differences with one another affect Tami? Which character holds the stronger possibility of courtship with Tami?
     
  7. What accounts for Tami's relaxing the rules where Vince is concerned while she passes all considerations regarding Zach through her parents?
     
  8. There are several biblical references in this book ("Joseph and Maryanne Carpenter," "Moses" in the river, etc.). Is there a "Christ figure" (traditional redemptive character)? If so, who is it?
     
  9. How has Tammy Lynn's upbringing, background, and birth order prepared her to be a caretaker for Mrs. Fairmont?
     
  10. Shakespeare frequently raises the theme of mental instability in characters vital to the story-telling process. This creates issues of doubt and trust with the reader. How does the question of Moses' and Mrs. Fairmont's states of mind affect this narrative? Are the most factually reliable characters necessarily the most trustworthy?
     
  11. For all of her endeavors to do the right thing, how does Tami misstep? Recall instances of her not revealing the whole truth. How does her selective editing strike you? Is this an oversight or a calculation?
     
  12. Who do you believe Tami brings home to visit her parents?
     
  13. Deeper water can be more challenging to ford or more buoyant. It can reveal spots teeming with fish to delight fishermen or conceal corpses and frustrate lawmen. In what ways did this book lead you to deeper waters?
