Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Wednesday, January 29, 2020
I got this hardcover at a local Goodwill thrift shop. Set in the mid-1700s, it follows a sister and brother as their paths in life diverge: she's now a maid to a haughty young mistress, while he's been press-ganged onto a Royal Navy ship. Their stories progress in alternating chapters, in second-person present and third-person present tenses - a bit awkward to follow at times, and all the more so as the story reaches its climax. There are... some twists here {wry grin}. It's very atmospheric, with some intense relationships, and a bittersweet note throughout.
