Normally, this would make me put a book down and give it up for a loss. As a reader, I want to connect with at least one character, otherwise I don't feel a connection to the story and I don't care enough to keep reading to see what happens to the characters.
That didn't happen with this novel, even though I didn't like these three characters, I needed to know how this story would play out. I wanted to know how Kit died. I wanted an answer for why Amanda stuck with Daniel. I wanted to know what was going on with Daniel in the present, not that I really cared.
I got my answer about Kit. I know why Amanda stuck with Daniel. I know how Daniel fares. I'm happy I finished reading. I liked the back and forth nature of the story. It felt as if the reader was on the journey with Daniel, through his struggles with dealing with Kit's death.
I say if the synopsis intrigues you as it did me, to give the story a chance. Sometimes the journey is worth taking.
It read almost like a Greek tragedy, only better. It kept my interest and had much to offer, a delight to read. G.L. Helm painted a clear picture of the human condition and pegged the irony of a man getting caught up in a no-win situation.
Helm did a superb job of setting the scene and evoking the feeling of the moment:
"Rain was running from the umbrella like a waterfall. It echoed in the narrow street with a pounding loneliness that caught at Daniel's throat."
That passage alone gave me the chills. I could hear the pounding rain and feel a sense of foreboding as if I was experiencing it too. There's more where that came from.
This is a short read, just 174 pages, but I suggest you take your time and savor. I highly recommend, especially for those who love tragic love stories or stories of military life abroad.
In full disclosure, I was given a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. While the story is wonderful, the editing needs some TLC, mostly dealing with punctuation.
