I would like to start a book club and read "My Cousin Rachel" as our first book. Do you offer some discussion questions?

Here are some to help get you started:

Who represents good and who represents evil in this book?

How does the novel deal with feminism?  Is Rachel feministic?

How reliable is Phillip as a narrator?

Is financial security worth risking  happiness?

What is Rachel's true nature?

What is the nature of Phillip and Ambrose's relationship?

How would the story have been different if told from Rachel's point of view?
