Endless Love

Jade is initially depicted as a fragile, reticent girl. How does this portrayal make her seem more vulnerable when she falls in love? How does it give David the opportunity to play the role of the knight in shining armor?

Why is Hugh so consumed by the loss of his son Chris? How does that affect his relationship with his other children and his wife? Does Jade really believe her family has healed from the death? Or does she just want to make herself believe they have?

Would Hugh’s concerns be more credible if he wasn’t portrayed so negatively in the story? In the long run would Jade likely be content with the kind of lifestyle David is presently planning on providing?
