Friends have made a huge difference in Jill’s life. She found people in her neighborhood and less strict church. Still Christian, but they’re women who wear pants, shorts, have fewer children, drink alcohol, cut their hair. She has a happiness and peace she never had. They also do talk a lot about everything they decide together as a family. I don’t see a patriarch dictating to her about choices. They seem determined to decide together.
I was wondering if she might be pregnant because her face is breaking out horribly. But it seems to be only where she wears a mask.
