5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant novel, 23 Jan 2012
This review is from: The Girl on the Cliff (Paperback)
I appreciate contemporary literature for its beauty and wonderful story-telling. The Girl on the Cliff demonstrates those qualities. It is beautifully written and kept me enthralled until the end. The plot is well developed and thought out. It is about Grania Ryan who returns to her native Ireland following a terrible tragedy and as a result abandoned a good life in America, as she has loving partner and a promising career as an artist. She meets a young girl Aurora in the cliff and develops a special bonding despite strong condemnation from her mother. The special bonding is so touching. Unfortunately, a dark secret changes everything as there is an unwanted history between two set of familes: Ryans and Lisles. The journeys start from Grania great grand-mother where it all begins. How will history change everything? How does the tone of novel change? It is emotionally, poignantly and deeply piece of novel. It shifts between the past and the present, as we take a historical journey to the war-time as the secret spans many years ago. How will knowing the truth change everything? It paints humanity in a negative and positive light. I find the novel absorbing and enjoyable. The characters are wonderfully sketches and connection between past and present is fascinating and intriguing to explore. The novel is brilliant and deserves strong praise in all cylinders.
