"Trials of Life" was a much more difficult book than the first book in the series. While "The Same Moon" is focused on Pearl's point-of-view exclusively, this book changes point of view frequently and without notice, which made it a bit difficult to follow who was "talking" to the reader. (Note: At author's request I provided editing to this book and the copy you get will hopefully have had this done - we have added information to make it easier to tell who is "speaking" at any given time) Also, the bulk of the book has to do with a truly despicable person named Dick Appleton, and having to spend so much time in his head made me want to scrub my skin with pumice and then pour lye into my eyes - he was really awful. Of course, the mere fact that Ms. Kirk was able to provoke such an extreme reaction in me shows that she knows exactly how to create a character that is sure to stick in the mind of the reader. While there are some issues with grammar and proper sentence structure, overall the writing style is excellent and I was duly impressed. (Note: Hopefully I have helped Ms. Kirk fix this, too) The main reason I marked off to only 4 stars was due to the voice confusion. (Note: I hope my changes will allow you to give it 5 stars!)
Overall I've found myself increasingly intrigued by both China and Scotland as a result of these books and would love to travel to both countries and have a chance to experience their cultures myself. I can recommend this book for those who enjoy a story about rising above and overcoming adversity - if that is you, definitely check it out.
"Trials of Life" is the second book in the Journey to the West series. The series main character Pearl, married, content and living in the UK. Pearl's happiness is quickly erased when she finds out about the death of Dr. Richard Appleton and this revelation brings back painful memories of her difficult journey. This when the book makes an imprint and were Ms.Kirk injects the vile Dr. Appleton into the reader's conscious.
The book is well written and subjective
Ms. Kirk is a character creative monster and that is something you can't teach. Five stars
The reason why my overall rating is four stars - I wanted more from Pearl.
Enjoyed it very much.
