In the book, "The Memory Keeper's Daughter" by Kim Edwards, after Norah has successfully destroyed the wasps' nest, Edwards writes that there was something happening in Norah's life, "an explosion, some way in which life could never be the same" (p. 139). What does she mean, and what is the significance of Norah's "fight" with these wasps?
Also, just a bit of context: "It was Paul [He has a bee allergy] she was fighting for, but also for some understanding of herself. You're afraid of change, Bree had told her. Why can't you just be?" And then Norah thinks, "But be what? Norah had wondered all day, be what?" (page 138)
