5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful writing & dramatic characterization equal a winner, 15 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Strangers and Sojourners: A Novel (Children of the Last Days) (Hardcover)
Every character in this poetic novel is an individual, no flat, cardboard stereotypes so common in modern novels. Even minor characters are believable and every scene plays an integral part in advancing the plot. I was particularly fascinated with the understanding shown by the author for the female protagonist, Anne Ashton. Her physical struggles in the Canadian wilderness, her psychological struggles with her own past, and the challenge of understanding her husband and children must resonate with many married couples. Examining Anne's life opens a window onto the life of each of us with its joys, sufferings, defeats, and successes. Not only was this a book that was worth reading, it's worth rereading and meditating on. I liked Fr. Elijah very much, but this book is a masterpiece.
