I read the hat this week, it was extremley interesting because of the different attitudes and opinions of the characters.
The next week she comes back to church wearing the appropriate attire which is a hat and gloves, however she is not wearing anything else.
I was tremendously surprised when i read that part, this means she was nude. I believe everyone reading the story would be surprised because this is not the usual way to act in a church .
The women walks in without the required attire and is shunned upon by the priest.
Overall I found the book to be intriguing as I have never and don't believe I ever will experience that situation inside a church. the story has also taught me about never letting anyone stop you from being you.
I felt like the Priest was out of order, when he did not accept her for who she is. In this day and age everyone takes pride in being themselves and unique.
