How tall is the table?

The cider house rules. Summary

The Cider House Rules revolves around the life of Homer Wells, an orphan who grew up in St. Cloud’s orphanage under the care and eventually, the tutelage of Dr. Wilbur Larch. The novel has three main parts, the first being an account of Homer’s youth, growing up in the orphanage serving as a medical assistant to Dr. Larch. Dr. Larch’s past is recounted as flashbacks that explain his emotional distance with women. As a young man, Wilbur Larch experienced a deeply distressing incident with a prostitute and this causes him to completely shun sex and relationships with women. In response to this trauma he instead chooses to help women as a doctor, assisting them especially with unwanted pregnancies ---the result of rape or incest in many cases--- by caring for the women as they give birth then caring for the infants in an orphanage that he put up.
