Riveting -- a definite keeper! Excellent,
This review is from: EVA Moves the Furniture (Paperback)This story will break your heart.
It is so perfectly beautiful that writing this review is an amazing challenge.
The story is told in first person narrative by Eva McEwen a lonely girl whose mother died in childbirth. She is adored by her widower father and her aunt, who has come to help raise her. Though beloved by her family, she is lonely, friendless, and very isolated. When she is six years old the "companions" visit her for the first time.
From her childhood through her adult life we watch Eva mature and grow into a woman, eventually becoming a nurse during WWII in Scotland. The companions are with her from start to finish.
Are they good or are they evil? You'll have to read the book to find out.
This gut-wrenching story is one you won't be able to put down until the last page. I sat silently for several minutes after the last line of the book - it had such a great impact. This book is a keeper.
