There seemed to be more than one example of a hurting person that changes around their attitude when they are reached out to in this story. Sometimes people think they are not capable of helping but when someone asks them and they are given a chance it makes the world of difference to some of those people, even if they are not aware they could be helpful. When the residents of the Brambleville Asylum for the Poor lose their home some of them are forced to live in a place where they don’t always feel they have freedom, which is what a lot of homeless people also face in our world today when they are locked away in shelters for the night, which is for their safety to follow a set of rules but might make some people feel like they have lost some of their freedom for the time while they are staying at the shelters. There are definitely some very good themes in this story and I encourage readers to discover them all for themselves.
