It is a dark and tragic tale that takes us to pre-World War II London, World War II Germany and 1960s Nebraska. Painstakingly researched historical details immerse the reader in Bridget’s world. So much so that I’d swear I walked the halls of St. Barts and farmed the field in Darkwater.
The author's ability to transport the reader into Bridget's mind is awe-inspiring. This is not just an account of her life; it is the emotional journey of her existence.
The brutality she endures. The pain she must inflict. It all is here. Never have I read such an intimate first person POV. It is a compelling read that is beautifully rendered.
Much like in real life, the painful moments are indelibly burned into memory, while the happy moments seem to race by.
One of the best books I've read from an indie author. K.Lyn Wurth is the reason indies need to exist. So that stories this powerful and honest can find their way to readers.
This richly told tale has hundreds of great lines worth rereading and highlighting.
“Maybe her life was like mine; much is calculated and less is remembered, while more is omitted, if not forgotten.”
“Yes, my death is coming, like a train you feel before you hear or see it, vibrating the steel rail beneath your shoe.”
“Not only violence warped us, but anticipation; we cowered, measured the temperature of a mood on entering a room and weighed each word, before speaking.”
I love a book that makes me see a new perspective and understand something I didn't before. A book that makes me better for having read it. This is one of those books.
