PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

Does something happen midway through the story—around page 50 to 60—to again twist the story?

Can we tell them apart by their language and behavior?

Are the minor characters interesting and compelling?

Is the villain/antagonist moving forward in Act Two, presenting a greater challenge than the hero imagined?

She walks down the street gazing about her, and gives a little skip. She walks on swinging her plastic bag.

Megan looks round, then runs to a shop doorway. Megan watches the lorry drive off, looks up and down the street, then edges out on to the pavement.

MEGAN, a rather bedraggled fifteen year old, pulls back the cover. She grabs her plastic bag of belongings and jumps off.
