Very well written. The narratives are excellent, and humour and pathos mingle seamlessly with the themes of astrology and philosophy. The City of Dreaming Spires is the perfect place for a love story, while the enigma of Dorothy Browning's gravestone says it all. There's a u-tube post that's worth looking at too.
Intend to buy a few more copies as Christmas presents. Hope there's a sequel to this book!
Felt completely intrigued by Gwen's quest of finding out about Dorothy Browning, Peter and the mystery of the inscription on the gravestone. Loved the portrayal of Gwen and Bill and their turbulent relationship, always sensing that they were destined to be eternal soulmates. Beautiful and moving description of Gwen's relationship with her war blinded father and an equally gripping and humorous storyline is Gwen's battles with her ageing mother. Some wonderful, quirky and very vivid characters pop up to support the main protagonists. You can't help but falling in love with them all.
''Gwen'',vividly drawn and ever so humanly real finds her life shaken by the kind of experience that maybe comes to many ,but which most have been schooled to ignore or keep quiet about.
Then follows engrossing histories of several,characters living and dead ,all trying to come to terms with what has happened and how to communicate with each other about it despite their different mental landscapes. Meanwhile life goes on .Love death,work ,children food,sickness money ,the real life is still going on yet shot through by the strange lightning flash.
Everything has the touch of real life about it and yet incredibly unusual signs and ''messages'' keep ''turning up'' so that in the end we are all driven right into the thick of the controversy about the nature of reality and the source of things.
In the most tactile down to earth way extraordinary ''coincidences'' seem to develop their own language and even alphabet,while on the ''ordinary ''level we rise and fall with the emotions and experiences of very recognizable people of our time.
I am sure as sure noone will ever have read a book woven so artfully as this ,compounded of the day to day and the immediate touch of the ''other 'world.
