Good question. Was Moira's partner in the book as well or since that was S2 stuff, it's all new material?

I think we'd have to talk to people who have read and know the book!

June's mum appears a lot in flashbacks in the book. In S1 they gave some of her scenes to Moira. As for what happens to her,
Spoiler:


The vast majority of S2 is new material, which makes sense considering it's not the longest book. The child-brides were in the book, but had nothing to do with Nick, June just witnesses a mass wedding. The girls and their mothers are crying and sad about it unlike in the show.

Moira's partner is show-only, but she is still a lesbian in the books.

Baby Charlotte
Spoiler:


Emily

Econo wives exist in the book, their outfits are different though. Colourful stripes to represent that they have three jobs in one, Wife, Handmaid, Martha.

Thanks. I wonder why they changed it on the show? Also thanks for the stuff about the child brides, Moira, baby Charlotte & Emily.

Congrats to Yvonne who gave birth to a son. I probably should have said blessed be the fruit instead.
