Scenes from Diana Dell's MEMORIES ARE LIKE CLOUDS float into the reader's mind as a fresh mist that puts all of life into a saner perspective. This sharp and focused narrative begins with little Diana's discovery of her brother Kenny sleeping in her very own crib. It continues by detailing the developing relationship between brother and sister based on similar interests: the love of a good story, an interest in people - family and neighbors especially, and the drive to get across the street and then keep moving on. Ms. Dell's relationship with her brother Kenny is the link, which ties together the delightful, the funny, the sad, and the devastating happenings of the book. Contrasting threads -- the telling of various war-time stories and living the easier life in East Vandergriff - weaves through the minds of the children, creating an awareness of their own family's history from Eastern European roots. They see through the stories their mother tells that wars are motivation for change and moving on. They become very aware of our country's history, and see other traumatic events such as the economic depression as a mover of people to places they would not have been otherwise. As the children are nurtured by their mother's stories, we readers see the Dell family history as a microcosm - the social and emotional setting that emphasizes man's humanity toward man, the ultimate theme of this volume. Ironically, this proves to be a startling contrast to the way Ms. Dell's beloved brother Kenny actually died in the horror of man's greatest inhumanity to man - war. That Pennsylvania town had only one road leading in and out.Read more ›
