    The Stone Angel eBook æ The Stone PDF/EPUB ² stone ebok, angel download, The Stone free, The Stone Angel eBookMany of us bristle over ‘school textbook’ and ‘award winner’ If you imagined “The Stone Angel” would make a good show of refinement but isn’t a five star page turner think again I’m a gothic mystery paranormal fan seldom enthusiastic without a ghost My marvel at this impressively crafted book is absolute which became a 2007 film I didn’t care for it as a pupil At 14 we find no adventure in hardship although those aspects are minor This time my eye caught stunningly astute absorbing emotionsThe course I followed is that of a well bred lady marrying a crass widower angering her Dad She is no shrinking violet trapped or bossed around We enjoy ‘Hagar Currie Shipley’s’ gumption keeping a situation calm or snapping back In the early 1900s here is a woman not steered by wagging tongues For several

    The Stone Angel eBook æ The Stone PDF/EPUB ² stone ebok, angel download, The Stone free, The Stone Angel eBookThis is one of the best books I have ever read I don't give 5 stars unless I truly believe that is what it is worth and Stone Angel is worth the five and in my opinionHagar Shipley is a character you will never forget stubborn ornery proud locked in her own version of her world and unwilling to see it any other way until her dying breathThe novel opens with a quote from one of the best poems ever writtenDo not go gentle into that good nightRage rage against the dying of the light Hagar has raged through her whole life and does not intend on going out of it softly or quietlyThis book can affect you on so many levels that it is hard to categorize It's about being a women in a very non feminist world that is still relatable today It is about being a parent and a child It is about the mistakes both make It is about old age and the rage against personal in

    The Stone Angel eBook æ The Stone PDF/EPUB ² stone ebok, angel download, The Stone free, The Stone Angel eBookRead For Book ClubHagar Shipley is one of the most memorable characters in Canadian fiction Why? Just That She is Memorable She is witty insightful miserable and has both love and resentment for those closest to her She puts her daughter in law Doris through the ringer on a daily basis and then calls her a flea She puts June bugs in her hair because they sparkle Her son picks her up in a horse drawn car because the engine is only to be used for emergenciesI thoroughly enjoyed Margaret Laurence's depiction of a 90 yr old woman looking back on her life as she grudgingly adjusts to her final years
