The setting is in suburban Connecticut, and among the wealthy. This New England feel during the early fall makes football season feel right there and on the verge of beginning to happen. I can just imagine a New England autumn to be illuminated by beautiful reds, oranges, yellows, and even some browns. The author typically writes for a current audience with a current modern day perspective.

The mood that this creates is one of security and comfort. With the time of year being particularly expressed, it is a time for new routines and warm reunions after a summer break. This feeling tricks the reader into believing nothing could go wrong.
