I'm glad I participated in InCoWriMo this year, but I'm also glad to relax a little! Still a couple of letters that have come in that need replies, but the pressure is off. If I participate next year, I'll be better prepared; this year, everything was a scramble.
|The Silence is a layered story told in alternating timelines that unfold gradually. Slow paced and character driven, the 1967 backstory reveals the human flaws in two families, flaws that are exacerbated by the situations in which they find themselves.|
And of course, lots of mysteries, thrillers, etc. I read every day; during breaks each day and for hours each night as I don't watch television. Cathy reminded me of the film The Rabbit-Proof Fence, which also covers the policy of taking aboriginal children from their homes in Australia (like the way Indian children were taken here in America and placed in boarding schools). I remember hearing about the film, but never watched it. It is now on my list--either the book or the film.
Have a good week!
