    [PDF/EBOOK] The Ghost's Child by Sonya Hartnett This was a fable I really liked Maddy but with Feather I have some bones to pick I do not get Truth from Feather the way Maddy did I get isolation and omission Maddy mentions that maybe it would have been better had she never met Feather Personally I'm in that camp Maybe I'm too much of a realist But come on What did he bring to the table really? He was mopey and impossible to communicate with and dare I say it PASSIV

I m reading this for Contemporary Children s Lit and according to my Prof this is simply divine and unlike anything you have ever read It sounds exuisitely painfulFor a novel its length A Ghost s Child is surprisingly heavy where the themes are concerned The book deals with self discovery in a multitude of ways Before the story of Maddy and Feather even begins Maddy sets off on a journey of self discovery with her father Maddy and her father travel around the world together seeing wondrous things places and people Maddy discovers facets of herself in everything she seesAnother moment for self discovery is when Maddy realizes she has a uestion to ask Feather so sets off on a sea journey helming her own boat to find Feather and ask him that uestion When she finally finds him on his island and asks the uestion she wanted to ask she makes another realization about her own self she is not prepared to be stagnant in a world that is always moving Her ability to pick up the pieces of her life and live without Feather shows her discovery that she is than a broken heart and that she can still live no matter how much she has been hurtAnother theme in this book is loss Not loss caused by death but loss cause by intentionally letting go of a person a dream or an idea and finding the strength to continue life without these things Maddy loses her adventurous fun loving father to the rigors of daily life when they return from their journey around the world She chooses to let go of Feather twice because she has realized that she cannot accept his philosophies and adopt them for her own She has to let go of her house in the woods and the dreams with which she built itDeath is another prevalent theme Maddy loses her parents and her grief is present throughout the narrative but it is an accepting pain unlike the loss of her baby due to miscarriage which causes Maddy a whole different kind of anguish However as much as death is a theme so is life and living The book is if you ll pardon the floweriness a celebration of life and living Maddy makes a choice when she leaves Feather on his never changing island She chooses to live and she does so wholly and fully She lives to the old age at which we find her and relates the story of her life the good the bad and the painful And that is what makes the book beautifulIf I had to attach a literary term for the style the book is written in I d say the author makes use of magical realism Wikipedia defines the term as an aesthetic style or genre of fiction in which magical elements blend with the real world Maddy has a nargun for a friend consult handout for information about it whom she consults on everything from her parents to her love life Maddy also goes on a crazy journey on a boat and converses with sea animals and birds She is also part of the audience watching an organized fight between a kraken and a leviathan She talks to a wind called Zephyrus who helps her get to Feather s island Most magical of all perhaps is the young boy who sits in Maddy s very ordinary living room and listens to her storyThe prose itself is incredibly detailed but deceptively simple in its diction There is careful attention given to colours and the way things are described so they become easier to visualize This novel is definitely a cross over novel that will appeal to both adults and children However I do believe that this one book that librarians will need to recommend to get kids to pick up I can see it being very popular if its read out to kids because as I said the writing is simple but exuisite and the plot is also full of adventure However the fact remains that the protagonist at the time we meet her is an old woman There is an instance in the novel when the boy tells Maddy as though he is delivering very bad news your house smells like old people Most kids like reading books with protagonists they can relate toThere is a duality to this novel that I appreciated An adult reading the novel will have a different take on it than a child For example the author never explicitly states that Maddy miscarries or the baby dies The baby is always called the fay And it s abstract enough in the way it is mentioned that a child would probably not realize the fay is a baby but an adult wouldThe book feels Australian in its regard for the sea We are somehow always in or around the sea whether at a beach or on a boat or on an island There is also the mention of tea and biscuits which is what we call cookies on that side of the worldIn conclusion the book is beautiful It s eerie poignant and lingering Please read it
