Coping with the death of a child
The rest of the week may be irregular too. It was so easy to read and I had to read the last quarter practically in one go. I loved Billy and felt very sympathetic for Sophie. Needless to say, romance ensues but Sophie struggles to fit into his rich and famous world. But it was! Sophie is endearing, delightful and only occasionally annoying in her constant self-doubting and criticisms but a lot of us feel this way towards our friends anyway. I really wanted her to be happy, and it was impossible not to feel sympathetic for her towards the entire book- but especially the end.
Billy the Kid still rides through the Old West of the American imagination: part reality, part myth; part outlaw and part instrument of justice; part hero and part homicidal maniac. But then, people have always seen what they wanted to see in Billy the Kid. His life must be assembled from fragments, from slivers of legend and exaggerated contemporary journalism. Bonney, Kid Antrim. Vernon has taken what is known and filled the wide gaps with fiction. The result is a little like an early black-and-white western film: the plot jerks about, the picture wobbles, unfocused characters come and go, often without explanation, and the slow-motion gunplay seems amateurish. McCarty was hired by John Tunstall, an English cattle baron, who appears to have shown him some kindness.
Elizabeth met Ian at university when she was 18 years old and they have been together ever since. Ten years later, all their friends are getting married, while Elizabeth is still waiting for Ian to propose. Heartbroken, Elizabeth moves back to her family home and tries to move on with her life. She had dreams and aspirations that she gave up on. So she decides to get back to her old self, the one who used to go dancing in clubs, who used to sing all the time, who used to wear high heels, and not turn down a night out with friends. Although I found the character of Elizabeth a bit too self-absorbed at times, I found her entertaining and liked her vitality and determination as she goes on a journey of self-rediscovery. This is the first novel by Giovanna Fletcher that I have read and I really enjoyed it.
