Adrift in the Sound by Kate Campbell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What were the main themes of the book? Culture, family and friends. Kate Campbell uses the Orcas Island and its people to expand the story and raise some thought provoking questions. Lizette's family life ties in with her present reclusive behaviour. She seems so withdrawn from people and yet so engrossed in her work. Lastly, Lizette's friends and people around her are stark contrasts to her. Her interactions with each of them are rather entertaining and the story flows in a descriptive way that I liked.
Were you able to connect with the main character and why? Not really, this was in a different time and era I have never experienced. I understood the emotions and motivations but found it difficult to relate to the settings. Because of this, it wasn't as easy as I would have liked to connect with the main character.
Which did you find more appealing, the introduction or the conclusion? When my book club members and I discussed this, it was a split. Quite a few of us chose the introduction and others chose the conclusion. I'm still torn between the two. The introduction has history, the ending has resolution.
