Downhill Chance

Downhill Chance review ↠ 103 R the Gale family afflicting the sensitive yet resourceful Clair an unforgettable heroine Forced to restart her life in another place she must forsake the family she loves and her community Morrissey blends drama gritty realism and a flair for the comic in this uniue novel At its core is the unravelling of secrets and the redemption that truth ultimately brings. 3 StarsI read this book immediately after reading the author s previous publication Kit s Law As with that book Downhill Chance didn t really grab my interest until well into the story I liked of the characters in this one than in the previous books and the portrayal of the mental anguish inflicted on a soldier returning from WWII is well done There are similarities between the two books both main characters leave a small outport full of petty small minded cruel people to find solace and acceptance among those of an even smaller outport and one thing that the author certainly does well is create characters so vile you want to reach into the story and strangle the life out of them I like the bit of a glimpse of the political scene of Newfoundland joining Confederation in 1949 and with Downhill Chance much so than Kit s Law the reader gets a feel for the colour of Newfoundland speech You may need an online dictionary or like I have a Newfie friend that you can call for help
