I loved the contrast between the way the female characters view love. Camila sees love the most realistically, but still with an air of reverence. She sees it as a choice and a privilege. Karen’s view of love is detached and non-committal, but not in a selfish way. She just doesn’t want it and doesn’t promise it. Daisy romanticizes romance but has no idea what real love is like, or if she’s even capable of it. This is evident in who she chooses to marry and why she stays with him for so long. Ultimately, she figures it out when Camila calls her out, but she really goes through a lot before she gets there.
