Excerpt


Newspaper columnist Peyton MacGruder has returned to her job after covering the story of an ill-fated Pan World flight. Having recently discovered Christine, the daughter she gave up to an adoption agency nineteen years ago, she is reluctant to commit to the handsome sportswriter Kingston Danville. She feels she owes it to Christine to set her love life aside and make up for lost time. But when a reader challenges Peyton's advice to "let caution trump passion," Peyton determines to learn the reason behind her reader's cynicism . . . and in the process, discovers answers to her own heart-rending dilemma.
     

 The Note II Discussion Questions: Angela Hunt

1.     John wrote, “God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.
 
“Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear.” 1 John 4:16-18.
How does this passage, which refers to our love for God, translate into our love relationships with each other? How did fear prevent Peyton from fully trusting and completely loving King? How did fear come between Ben and Eve? What must happen before fear can be expelled?

 


 
2.     “Man is only truly great when he acts from the passions.” —Benjamin Disraeli

“Serving one’s own passions is the greatest slavery.”  —Thomas Fuller
 
How are both of these opinions true? How can they both be true if they seem to contradict each other?

 

 
3.     Eve disagreed with Peyton’s statement that “caution should trump passion.” At the beginning of the story, did you side with Eve or Peyton? Did you change your position as the story progressed?

 

 
4.     If you were a newspaper columnist, what would be your greatest challenge? What is Peyton’s greatest difficulty? What are her strengths?

 

 
5.     If you’ve seen the movie or read the novel, “The Note,” how has Peyton changed in the time between that story and this one?

 

 

6.     Do you agree with Peyton’s decision to tell Christine that she is the girl’s biological mother?

 

 
7.     Do you think King will break Peyton’s heart like Gil did? Why or why not?

 

 
8.     Is there a character in the novel with whom you identify? What is it about this person that strikes you as familiar?

 

 
9.    One of Peyton’s chief weaknesses is fear. In “The Note,” she experienced panic attacks. She seems to have those under control in this story, but anxiety still causes trouble for her.  Do you fear? If so, what are you afraid of?

 

 
10.     In Psalm 27, David wrote, “The Lord is my light and my salvation—so why should I be afraid?
The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?”
What practical help can we discover in this verse when we feel ourselves becoming anxious and afraid? Is there anything on earth that can truly harm us?

 

 
11.     What can you gain from a novel that you can’t find in a film? What advantages does film hold over the printed page?
