Joan Bauer’s delightful injections of “apple” imagery reinforce the tone of the story and her rich characters add depth and understanding to the theme. Baker Polton, a gruff retired newspaperman challenges the students to get the facts. “Biddle, are you hungry enough to get at the heart of the Ludlow story?” (91) Minska, the local restaurant owner and friend of Hildy, shares her experience as a child growing up in Poland during the Solidarity movement in Gdansk to encourage the students when no one will listen to them. The most valuable character to inspire Hildy is her father, a great newspaperman who died several years earlier. His words ring throughout the entire story, “You know how to peel an apple, Hildy? Once you start cutting, don’t stop until the peel comes off. It’s how you do anything…you’ve got to start and not stop until the job is done.”
