My comments on Gold Coast BookCoasters regarding the book
"The Memory Keeper's Daughter" by Kim Edwards:
I have recently finished reading “The Memory Keeper’s Daughter” by Kim Edwards.
What a wonderful book! On a different level altogether. The humanity shines through this novel, the personalities and the intricacies and also uncertainties
I would recommend this book as it gives a good understanding of alternative values,
which sometimes may occur, especially in the setting of earlier times and a more repressive system which people often adhered to as regards human frailties, as
described in the book.
I loved the story, the wonderful story telling , which was often on a personal level, understanding the people and the reasons for their actions.
The descriptions in the book of scenery, countryside, cities, farmland echoed in the story
with a vibrance and vitality giving authenticity to the very telling of the story.
There are also discussion questions regarding this book,
as also discussion questions regarding "Wolf Hall" by Hillary Mantel and The Tudors.
