Description

Seeing my mother as the lead story on the six o'clock news was no great cause for alarm...until the camera revealed her chained to a downtown monument!

I thought I knew my mother-but right now I'm not sure I even know myself. I'm currently a journalist for the Savannah Chronicle. And I don't need drama. Really, I can create my own. Who needs extra? But in spite of the mind-boggling events in Savannah this week, the truth is going to be revealed by one of its very own. I am Savannah...from Savannah.

  1. Can you remember a time when your mother was the center of attention, but the situation left you embarrassed or frustrated?
  2. There are moments in life when strangers enter for a brief period, like Joy did in Savannah's life. What has a stranger given you or revealed to you about yourself?
  3. Savannah is desperate to get Grant back-but desperate because she doesn't like to lose, not because she's in love. Have you ever had a situation in your own life where a feeling you thought was one emotion was really based on another emotion entirely?
  4. When Savannah meets Faith, she thinks she is meeting the kind of woman she wants to be. By the end of the novel, however, she discovers that isn't necessarily true. Can you think of a first impression that made you confident you wanted to be like that person, only to have time reveal that you were more satisfied with your own life than you thought?
  5. Whether Savannah likes it or not, Joshua has her pegged. He recognizes things about her that she hasn't even been able to admit to herself. Has that ever happened in your life? How did it make you feel?
  6. Jake has an ongoing frustration with the dishwasher installer. He turns out to be a man who declares he is one thing, but his actions reveal someone completely different. Have you had people like this in your life? How did you deal with them? Do you ever find yourself exhibiting some of these same traits?
  7. Victoria Phillips spends this entire book chained to a monument. Did that make people respect her position on the Ten Commandments, or are there other ways she could have gotten her point across?
  8. In Savannah's final encounter with Faith, she learns something about her name. What does your name mean and how does it define you? Look it up if you need to. You may be surprised by what you find.
  9. Savannah runs into Emma and wishes for a way to take back the things she said in her first article (in Savannah from Savannah). Has there ever been a relationship that you've tried to mend that took a much greater effort than you expected? What specific things did you do to help heal that relationship?
  10. Savannah has a revelation at the end of the book that life is about "being" as Joy says, not just "doing." What have you learned about "being"?
  11. What is the main discovery that you made while reading Savannah Comes Undone?
