Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The setting, Wyoming; two young men meet, fall in love, part ways but reunite each year. Which Annie Proulx short story is this?

Answer: Brokeback Mountain

Annie Proulx's story tells of an enduring love between two rough young men (Ennis and Jack), hired to tend sheep on a seasonal grazing ground. They regarded themselves as heterosexual and the emotional and sexual bond they form is sudden and unexpected.

The story continues over the next 20 years, as each man pursues a "conventional" family life, but continue the liaison in secret with camping trips in remote areas.
2. A young woman's ghost haunts the wild Yorkshire Moors, while the man she passionately loved (and who loved her) exacts his revenge. What classic tale, written under the pseudonym, Ellis Bell, is this?

Answer: Wuthering Heights

Emily Bronte's dark tale of unfulfilled love has inspired authors and movie-makers for generations. The story is of Catherine Earnshaw, who loves Heathcliffe, but will not marry him because he is a poor orphan living on her father's charity. She marries Edgar Linton and dies in childbirth.

Heathcliffe, heartbroken and bitter, takes his revenge over many years on the two families he has come to hate. Catherine and Heathcliffe are finally reunited in death.
3. Penelope, at the end of her life, reflects on Richard, her lover, killed in World War II, and decides how to distribute her father's legacy of important paintings between her three children. Author, Rosamunde Pilcher. What is the book's title?

Answer: The Shell Seekers

This is my favourite Rosamunde Pilcher novel, the main plot of which echoes "King Lear", with two grasping children and one loving and unselfish daughter. Penelope thinks back to the love of her life, Richard, while deciding what to do with several (now very valuable) artworks by her father, including "The Shell Seekers".

She is appalled by the greed of her two older children but enraptured by the blossoming romance between her gardener, who reminds her of Richard, and Antonia, her younger daughter's dear friend.
4. This Queen loved her husband, but fell passionately in love with his friend. This was the catalyst for the fall of the kingdom and the breaking of the Round Table. A 15th century classic, based on Sir Thomas Malory's work, what is it commonly known as?

Answer: Le Morte d'Arthur

"Le Morte d'Arthur" was taken from the works of Sir Thomas Malory, written in the 15th century. It brings together Arthurian legends from England and France. Lancelot, Arthur's most trusted knight and friend, and Queen Guinevere loved each other, at first from a distance, then later, after he had rescued her from kidnap, they became lovers, with disastrous results for Camelot.
5. It is the end of the First World War. The heroine's aristocratic husband returns home paralysed from the waist down. She becomes attracted to the gamekeeper, Oliver, and they embark on a passionate and secret romance. Which scandalous novel was this?

Answer: Lady Chatterley's Lover

Connie Chatterley's marriage to Clifford is blighted by his emotional detachment as well as by his impotence. She and the gamekeeper, Oliver, embark on an increasingly passionate and obsessive romance.
"Lady Chatterley's Lover" was originally released in 1928 with passages removed to cater for the prudish standards of the day. When, in 1960, Penguin published the unexpurgated version of the book, the subsequent obscenity trial provided amazing publicity and unprecedented sales.
6. This tempestuous romance is set in Georgia during the Civil War. Spoiled and spirited, our heroine makes a play for a former beau, then for a rogueish blockade-runner. Her love for him (and for her stately plantation home) becomes an obsession. Which Southern best-seller was this?

Answer: Gone With the Wind

Her obsession with Rhett does not prevent Scarlett from marrying, first for revenge, then for money (to avoid losing Tara, her home).

Margaret Mitchell's epic novel would doubtless have been much less popular without the movie (a true block-buster) starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh.
7. A nurse, on honeymoon in Scotland, is transported back 200 years in time. For protection she is forced to marry a young Laird, and gradually finds herself hopelessly in love with him. Diana Gabaldon's first in a highly popular series was called "Cross-Stitch" in England and Australia. What is it more universally known as?

Answer: Outlander

Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series is so meticulously researched that I found copies of it on sale at Culloden Battlefield's Visitor Centre. (The other books were reference and historical non-fiction). Despite the time travel element, this is not a fantasy; Claire and Jamie's story is one of the finest romantic stories I have ever read, set in tumultuous times - the horror of Culloden, the Highland Clearances, and the American Revolution.
8. Allie and Noah fall in love, he has to leave but tries to stay in touch via letters, which are never answered. Fourteen years later they meet again; she is now engaged to another. Which man will she choose? Which Nicholas Sparks' novel is this?

Answer: The Notebook

After Noah and Allie meet again, her mother admits she has intercepted Noah's letters, and gives them to her. Now Allie must decide between her loving fiancee and the love she thought she had lost.
9. University professor with Asperger's seeks a wife. Must be the perfect partner and pass the written test. Only punctual, logical women need apply. Graeme Simsion is the undeservedly little-known author of which title?

Answer: The Rosie Project

Don, a highly intelligent professor of genetics has never had a second date with someone; still, having been told he would make a great husband, he sets out in orderly fashion to find a wife. Rosie is an amazing person, strong, fiery and loving. This is a hilarious but thought-provoking book, narrated by Don, who unconsciously reveals the blind spots his condition displays to outsiders. I thoroughly enjoyed this and its sequel, "The Rosie Effect".
10. In Colombia, Florentino and Fermina fall in love, and are separated by her father; she marries a respected doctor. In old age, the widowed Fermina has another chance to rekindle her love. Written by a Nobel Prize-winner, which well-loved novel is this?

Answer: Love in the Time of Cholera

Gabriel Garcia Marquez's tale is remarkably and deceptively simple. Fermina has married a doctor, Juvenal, who is committed to eradicating cholera in Colombia. In the meantime, Florentino has remained single, and totally devoted to Fermina. After a long and (mostly) happy marriage, Juvenal dies, and Florentino can once again declare his love.
