Summary The Shore

Sara Taylor · 7 Free download Free read ¹ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB · Sara Taylor Summary The Shore Welcome to The Shore a collection of small islands sticking out from the coast of Virginia into the Atlantic Ocean Where clumps of evergreens meet wild ponies oyster shell roads tumble down houses unwanted pregnancies murder storm making and dark magic in the marshes Situated off the coast of Virginia's Chesapeake Bay the group of islands known as the Shore has been home to generations of fierce and resilient women Sanctuary to some but nightmare to others it's a. I don t read short stories as a rule and I know I am missing out on some really good writing but once in a while I take the leap especially if the stories are connected That s the next best thing to a novel for me and this collection felt like a novel sort of It would have felt so if the stories in this book were in chronological order then the changes in the narratives spanning over 250 years might not have been as confusing However the appearance of people mentioned in one story in another story which takes places years or a century before was a clever mechanism that hooked me The structure of the book made for a little work to piece things together and several times I had to move back and forth between stories to confirm the link It does however come full circle in a way with the character of Chloe from the first disturbingly and devastatingly sad story There are many characters in the these stories but from beginning to end it was Chloe s story for me I m not sure there s an ounce of joy anywhere in this book with maybe the exception of the last pages If there was any earlier I surely missed it among the depressing sad lives of the people that inhabit The Shore consisting of three islands off the coast of Virginia and spanning the years 1876 2043 One finds brutal realities here revenge murders meth and physical abuse as wives and children are beaten and women are raped There s black magic healing and a recurring theme of unplanned unwanted pregnancies Pretty heavy duty stuff but if you can go on after the reading the first chapter which gave me pause you ll be rewarded with descriptive writing taking you into the desolate places in the lives of these characters with the creativity of the storytellingThis is not for the faint of heart It s dark and brutal but I can t help but feel that there is writing here worthy of our attention and if you make it through to the ending chapters you might like I did find a an ounce of hopeThanks to Crown Publishing and NetGalley

Sara Taylor · 7 Free download Free read ¹ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB · Sara Taylor Summary The Shore Place they've inhabited fled and returned to for hundreds of years From a half Shawnee Indian's bold choice to flee an abusive home only to find herself with a man who will one day try to kill her to a brave young girl's determination to protect her younger sister as methamphetamine ravages their family to a lesson in summoning storm clouds to help end a drought these women struggle against domestic violence savage wilderness and the corrosive effects of poverty a. Nearly 45 Gritty and virtuosic this novel in 13 stories imagines 250 years of history on a set of islands off the coast of Virginia As a Maryland native I think of Chincoteague and Assateague as vacation destinations but Taylor definitely focuses on their dark side here industrial scale chicken farms unwanted pregnancies domestic violence bootleg liuor gang rape murders and meth labs There s a core of narratives set in the 1980s 90s that could easily form a novel on their own but these are interspersed with vignettes stretching from 1876 to 2143 Dirty realism thus shares space with historical fiction and dystopia while first person narration about one third trades off with third person nearly two thirds and one instance of the second person Boys My favorite of the stories were the nineteenth century ones about Medora a half Native American healer These have a faint flavor of Wide Sargasso Sea while there are traces of Ron Rash and David Vann in the rest Taylor has proven here that she can do it all contemporary realism period research even post apocalyptic Each of those genres could have spawned an entire book but when crammed together they seem a bit show offy or like Taylor couldn t make up her mind what she wanted the book to be I also thought the 1980s 90s chapters were repetitive with young women getting knocked up by dubious boyfriendsIs The Shore short stories or a novel That s a uestion I m still asking myself I ve heard Taylor s approach compared to David Mitchell s in Cloud Atlas or The Bone Clocks but I haven t read either anyone who has feel free to let me know how Taylor measures up The compromise position says it s linked short stories like Snow in May by Kseniya Melnik Unforgettable by Paulette Alden or Archangel by Andrea Barrett with characters andor their ancestorsdescendants showing up in later chapters I think in the end I would have preferred a clearer choice either a chronological novel or a straight set of short storiesStill there s no denying that Taylor can write and I loved tracing the history of some dying communities that are than just names to me Every region needs a literary chronicler and I reckon Taylor is it for the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Virginia s islands This was certainly a deserving entry on the 2015 Baileys Prize longlist Next time though I hope she ll commit to one genre or style
