Shadow Song von Terry Kay
Shadow Song von Terry Kay
The theme of lost love and "what might have been" or woven together in the rhythmical, almost mystical writing of Shadow Song, written by Terry Kaye. Kaye is a masterful storyteller and his method of weaving the past and the present into a coherent rendering was done very well. I read page after page waiting for the answer to the question: why did Amy and Bobo love each other? What values did they share that made their love so special?

The plot of this book was exceptionally well crafted. The imagery and descriptions were written so well, you can truly see yourself in the Arctic Ocean, northern Canada, Siberia, and Germany and everywhere else the author takes us.

Still, it is worth reading.
