Heartwarming / The Chrysalids

  • When Sophie is exposed as a mutant, her mother doesn't blame David for it, or even get angry that she was discovered, despite the fact that this would probably never have happened if David had never come into their lives. Instead, she tells David that he's a brave boy and thanks him for being friends with Sophie.
  • At the end of the novel, we have Rosalind smiling, really happy for the first time in a long time.
