Read Cherubs , loved it. A group of Americans are invited to a French wedding 50 years after the village's liberation from German troops in World War II. They are present before the wedding as guests of honor and the lady of the house, Béatrice, tells them part of a war story. The grandmother, cook, and maid all stayed behind to "guard" the house during the occupation. Through out the telling of the story the American guests are treated and as though they themselves has liberated the village, however the the pride of the group is shattered when they are told that when the Americans came, they had shot at the cook while she was trying to surrender! Béatrice is called away at this point in the story and the guests are left to wonder what the rest of the story might be. It would be a mighty blow to their pride if the cook survived all the way through WWII just to be shot while surrendering to Americans. This group of American guests has the dynamic of a singular character in this story. Other than the fact that everything about them is plural, their actions are singular.

    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.
