Read from January 13 to 17, 2012

That I'm neither a parent nor have I ever lost someone I loved & yet felt this story deep in my bones is a testament to Christopher Coake's talent as a storyteller & writer. He had me hooked on this story within a few short pages. It was sad as the theme is about losing a child & the toll it takes on his parents, but it was also a bit hopeful, with the possibility of somehow finding a way to not just continue living past the grief but overcoming it so that life can somehow be something to welcome, not curse. This book raises questions of belief; in people's loyalties, in the ties that bind us to others, & yes, of course even in the afterlife as this story is laced with a bit of the supernatural. I'm eager to read another of Coake's books & see if they're just as good.
