but I started this book at noon and finished it at midnight with barely
a break. Caroline Collier has a great future as a novelist if she wants it.
There is so much in this one book that feels at once historical and foreseen. as i read it i felt a definite search going on in my own heart to find my authentic spirit identity.
the characters are fleshed out in sensual detail and the challenges they confront are plausible and horrifically real.
as Ms Collier points out in this unfolding, the US is a nation of confused ideology, hypocrisy and a distorted sense of its self in this world. and while we applaud lady liberty holding that torch, at the same time we are very possessive of our freedom and reluctant to share.
each of these characters seem to be a part of everyone of us. maybe Karma and re-birth will be easier next time around.
