With a few exceptions I am not a fan of coming of age stories which is annoying as there seems to be a lot around at present That said I did enjoy The Beloved From its stunning cover this book is filled with colour It starts with the blackness that descends when polio hits Roberta Bertie Lightfoot as a young child and shows the cruelty of other children and sometimes adults to her disability It reminds us how cruel people can be and how much words can wound With the help of her mother Lily May Bertie recovers and learns to walk again But Bertie s Mama does all she can do stop Bertie pursuing the one thing she wants to do art I struggle to understand parents who try to mould children into their own image or preconceived ideas of what they should be and do instead of letting them be themselves As you might expect Bertie s passion for art becomes a major conflict between them So you not only have the colours of the art as Bertie paints and the coloured auras she sees around people another things that causes trouble there are also the brilliant colours of bougainvillea and other examples of a tropical landscape after the family move to New Guinea and the town of Port MoresbyThis book gave lots to think about It is insightful about relationships that of mother and daughter but also other relationships It is also a novel of secrets that are uncovered and those secrets always lead to troubleThis book won the ueensland Premier s Literary Award for emerging author Although an emerging author her photo shows a smiling mature woman This is a novel written by an author I would suggest with lots of life experience It reads like some of this novel could perhaps be autobiographical At times I found the behaviour of the characters hard to understand That is not a fault of the writing Just that I look at things differently I experienced sadness laughter anger outrage and frustration as I read which shows I was involved with these characters even if didn t always understand them I will be very interested to read this author s next book The Horizon The Royal Marines Saga use it sparingly'When Roberta 'Bertie' Lightfoot is struck down with polio her world collapses But Mama doesn't tolerate self pity and Bertie is nobody if not her mother's daughter 奔馬 until she sets her heart on becoming an artist Through drawing the gifted and perceptive Bertie gives form and voice to the reality of the people and the world around her While her father is happy enough to indulge Bertie's driv.
