I just couldn't get into the author's style. I'm a bit of a stickler for correctness. This book quickly drove me bonkers.
“But his mother Gloria Hines was being unreasonable.”
Awkward, and there should be commas surrounding the name.
Page 1 (very next sentence)
“She’d told him in no uncertain terms he wasn’t bringing his red and white umbrella his grandparents had given him, because of what happened the first and last time he’d used it, when they went to the outdoor market, down by the wharf.”
Seriously? Maybe that made perfect sense and flowed in the author's head, but not for me. No. Uncle. Done. Maybe if the author totally reworks the book, I'll try it again, but I'm not going to force myself through a whole book of such poorly constructed sentences. The writing needs to flow so the reader gets pulled into the story.
This is the first thing I have read by this author. If any of these characters appear in others of her books I will soon find out.
Keep up the good work, MS.Eckhart.
Read this story. You will like it very much.
