Relationships NW

Throughout the novel, the continual theme of race and culture helped the novel's story grow and evolve. Race and culture also helped build Leah and Michel's unique relationship, which is what interested me most about the novel's many themes. The novel unfold's the relationships of the characters in a way society wouldn't define them as functional relationships, yet they manage to stay with their partner and continue the relationship. I'd like to look into more of the relationships between the characters and how race and culture play into effect, especially Leah and Michel's relationship.
