Mallory Brooks Love Medicine By Louise Erdrich Love Medicine , like all of the other novels thus far, is jam packed with similar themes. The strongest themes are the homing plot, search for identity, and family ties and relations. There is not just one person who is going through this process but instead almost every person, creating a complex family story but a personal story as well for the reader. The first chapter of the book starts with June and takes us through her last day alive, in the following chapters we go back in time to learn all of the families history and piece together the characters life’s. June is the first example of the use of the homing plot; unfortunately, she does not make it home like the majority of the others. Henry Jr. is the person who does not find their way home. Nector Kashpaw finds his way home through closure with Lulu, and rejoining Marie in his life after death. This situation in a complicated one though, because it is unsure whether or not he in the end truly wanted to be with Lulu or Marie. When Lipsha finds out from his grandmother Lulu who his parents really are, allowing him to figure out where he belongs and to whom.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
