    Call of the Curlew [E–pub/E–book] I saw Eowyn Ivey's blurb on the cover of this book and since I loved her novel 'The Snow Child' I thought I'd take a chance I was very disappointed however because though the book was atmospheric and the setting was bleak the story was bland slow and boring It goes back and forth in time from pre World War II and the World War II era to the presentThe book opens with Virginia age 86 finally having found a sign

SUMMARY Call of the Curlew

DOWNLOAD ´ Call of the Curlew READ ´ YEEZY950.US Ç Elizabeth Brooks SUMMARY Call of the Curlew Tive parents Clem and Lorna Wrathmell at their mysterious house Salt Winds The house sits right on the edge of a vast marsh a beautiful but dangerous place It's the start of a new life for Virginia but she uickly senses that all is not right between Clem and Lorna i. The Orphan of Salt Winds was previously published in England as Call of the Curlew a title that also plays a role in the story itself Following the rule for literary scholars and bibliographers I shall refer to the book by its original title I wondered what other changes the American editors introduced to justify their presence but it s likely that the flashlight that plays rather a role in the story was really a torch and that the odious Mr Deering s Austin 12 had a bonnet not a hood But the setting remains the low lying coast of East Anglia with its treacherous tides and dangerous currents These also are crucial to the story and attracted me as a reader Having enjoyed many happy times sailing from West Mersea in my younger days I was eager to revisit the locationThis is a two track narrative The backstory takes place at the beginning of the Second World War and unfolds over two years Virginia an eleven year old orphan girl has been adopted by Clem and Lorna Wrathmell a name that seems simultaneously ominous and homely and come to live at an old house on the coast Salt Winds The contemporary narrative is set on New Year s Eve 2015 as the aged Victoria contemplates adventuring into the marsh for the last time Clem is a nature writer living in a perfect location Lorna is a children s book illustrator Virginia and Clem immediately form a strong bond but there seems a tension with Lorna There is also the officious well off neighbor Mr Deering a widower with daughter Juliet and her obnoxious younger sibling Theodore Not only does Mr Deering s interest in Lorna seem sinister and obsessive but he attempts unsuitable familiarities with Virginia Juliet is an early victim of the German raids when a bomb obliterates her railway carriage as she was returning to school On the night of 31st December 1940 Virginia sees through the window a German fighter aircraft crash into the marsh Even if the pilot survived he would surely drown But Clem confident in his knowledge and experience takes a rope and torch to try to rescue the downed enemy pilot if he is still alive Clem never returns but Virginia never loses hope that he somehow survived and faithfully awaits his return Best stop here with the plot to avoid spoilers I confess some disappointment with Call of the Curlew though I think it s not undeserving of the high praise it has received from readers such as Claire Fuller It is a very slow boiler even though it has a thriller climax that I didn t find uite believable this villain never would have had the nerve actually to shoot anyone And what some might term the big reveal most readers will see coming from afar I don t mind that the best books are those you can read again after you know the plot But I don t think Call of the Curlew is one And though a mysterious child is introduced from out of the night to give us some gothic frisson and the setting so recalls The Woman In Black I was just never scared not ever a little bit I shall be watching out for future books by Elizabeth Brooks but this one didn t uite come together for me The ingredients of plot character and setting represent the best traditions of the classical English ghost story but the dish seemed bland and overcooked I am grateful to Galley Club for the favor of a gratis copy in exchange for my review
