Findings in the novel There are several events present in the novel that are either un-explained or are just there for the sake of having all issues covered Roses anorexia This is a rather undisclosed subject in the book Winton puts Rose in the position of being anorexic when her mother Dolly goes on a drinking binge and never does any house work and making of food This forces Rose to take charge and become what her mother refuses to be Her father then forces her to eat after he sees what is happening to his daughter The weird factor comes in where it is never once talked about again It simply fades into the background of the book as a happening It is never heavily discussed and the factors of her anorexia are never really disclosed Dollys lover Dolly has an affair with a married man at the pub She has sex with him and his wife comes and talks to Sam Yet after the affair is over it is never talked about again The reader cannot escape the thoughts of it when reading the novel but Winton can Death of the boy As Rose Chubb and Ted are walking home from school a boy is struck by a train There is a whole section on the boys before the event yet after this there is not a word spoken of them They die its in the paper then thats it Never to be spoken of again Elaines Marriage Elaines marriage is treated as if it is almost trivial The events leading up to and during the event are not thorough and disjointed This give the impression that Winton did not wish this wedding to have major emphasis on the novel and its story When Elaine gets married its almost a relief that he does not have to constantly refer to character in the background
