What's Bred in the Bone - Robertson Davies - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of What's Bred in the Bone:

The secrets of Francis Cornish.

My favorite Robertson Davies quote from the book:

“The art of the quoter is to know when to stop.”

Questions to ponder while reading What's Bred in the Bone:

Do you know your family's secrets?

What family drama has shaped your character?

My thoughts on What's Bred in the Bone:

Despite being #2 in a trilogy, the book stands alone.

Good view of human character.

All sorts of familial wisdom.
