Other questions coming our of the small group:
Why did Amy stay with Ned, even after John would have been able to help?
Is this the same dynamic we see today in domestic violence?
How is John's abuse of Lucy and (especially) Hattie related to Ned's treatment of Amy?
What was the untold story of Alf Pearson and Amy? We're assuming that John is their child, was it rape? Was Amy's story one of constant abuse?
