Setting Analysis of “where´d you go Bernadette?”

The setting of “Where´d you go Bernadette?” is located in a wealthy neighbourhood in downtown Seattle. Even though that the family lives in a wealthy neighbourhood, their house is old and unmaintained. It used to be a girls school, and now they use it for a living.

The family though likes the house, from which we can conclude that they are a bit alternative compared to an average family.

The weather in the story is described as rainy, and this combined with the knowledge that the family comes from sunny california, tells us that the family is kind of depressed during the story.

Talking about fitting into Seattle, this family really dont fit in. Seattle is too rustic and small for them, as well as the weather (as mentioned above) Dont make the family comfortable.
