In the second episode of season 2, Jessica and Laura do a re-read of the Lucy Maud Montgomery novel THE BLUE CASTLE. The comfort food is chinese food, specifically wonton soup and pork fried rice. And the community comfort is the tactile experience of a bowl of dry rice or beans (listen to the episode for details, you'll get it). So, crack open your copy of THE BLUE CASTLE, and join Jess and Laura for a discussion of the sin of fear, the theft of a silver spoon, and love (and sex) in the time of L. M. Montgomery.
