    Paperback à Away PDF ↠ away ebok, Away KindleNot a bad novel but in the end I got annoyed with how she wouldn't write a simple sentence No kettles boil it's always symphonies of misty steam swirling and dancing up past the kitchen window obscuring her view like the hot version of the frost on this January morning reminding her of the way the sprites danced also elusive to view also form changing also obstructing the clarity of sight but of the mind's sight instead of the eye's Beautiful for a

    Paperback à Away PDF ↠ away ebok, Away KindleSpeaking as a Canadian of mixed heritage it's always a bit annoying when our official policy of Multiculturalism forces us to answer the question What's your nationality?

    Paperback à Away PDF ↠ away ebok, Away Kindle35 stars This is an intriguing well written historical novel My knowledge of Canadian history is practically nil so I wasn't even aware that there were so many Irish potato famine victims in Canada struggling for survival during the time of the US Civil War It turns out history happened elsewhere too The title takes on a double meaning As Urquhart's story opens we meet Mary a very young woman living on a remote island off the coast of Ireland who has the traumatizing experience of pulling a shipwrecked man out of the ocean only to have him die in her arms After this she is never the same Her fellow islanders superstitiously refer to her as away and believe she has been influenced by an evil spirit Mary does feel an attachment to this man she pulled out of the sea for the rest of her life Eventually however Mary does become wedded to a local school master and they start a family She tends to be distant but manages

    Paperback à Away PDF ↠ away ebok, Away KindleThe women in this book are so vague and poetic and otherworldly and romantic that by the end I couldn't stand it any I thought I'd like it at first but it was just too much with the awayness It doesn't help that everything they say is gibberish either

    Paperback à Away PDF ↠ away ebok, Away KindleI am often caught between giving 3 or 4 stars to a book and wish half stars were an option In my universe pun intended 5 stars is reserved for books that are not only well written and creative but that catch me up emotionally and transport me someplace else while I'm immersed in them 4 stars are for books that are almost there I usually appreciate the writing but don't feel connected enough into the book's world Three stars are for books that are above average in terms of writing but basically run of the mill I put most mysteries and thrillers in this category Two stars are seriously flawed in my opinion as a reader I may or may not finish t
