4.0 out of 5 stars Are they real or are they fantasy-the Dodder people?, 10 July 2006
This review is from: Silent People: Hearing the Call of the Dodder (Paperback)
Genre: Fantasy/ Fiction

Title: Silent People: Hearing the Call of the Dodder

AUTHOR: Yvonne Jerrold

As a child, Hebe loved the forest and the forest creatures. Her childhood friend, the wild `dodder' boy was her constant companion. Although very different, they formed a close bond and wiled away the hours together. But fate intervened and Hebe left Dodder's Well and her wild and mysterious friend. Years later she returns and attempts to find him and regain that feeling of belonging that was always missing in her life.

A hidden race of people, the Dodders are born from seed and live close to nature all of their lives. They have no need for material things, egotistical successes or interaction with humans. Are they real or simply a product of a lonely child's imagination? Can Hebe ever really fit in? Is she perhaps one of the Dodder people herself? You will have to read Silent People for answers to these questions and find a fascinating world of imagination, fantasy and wonder. This book leaves the reader pondering many possibilities that lay beneath the conscious mind.

Author, Yvonne Jerrold was born in the US but educated in Dublin and Cambridge. She continues to live in England where she is planting a small woodland of native trees. A true lover of nature her knowledge of horticulture shines in this novel.

A lovely, easy read for a sunny afternoon. Reviewer: Shirley Roe, Allbooks Reviews.
