bookshelves: canadian-author, bookcrossing
Read in July, 2011

The writing was haunting and beautiful, but the story was desperately difficult to get through, due to the subject matter. I empathized with Millicent but I related more to Eleanor, and therefore found Millicent's behaviour not only difficult to understand but most times, infuriating. Still, Kogawa writes poetically. I loved the metaphor of the lion-king.
