Editorial review

Lois Lowrycff0478#39;s very good novel of the far away long term, The Giver, is set in a extremely technical and emotionally repressed society. This eagerly awaited companion volume, in contrast, occurs in a village with only probably the most rudimentary generation, the place anger, greed, envy, and casual cruelty make ordinary peoplecff0478#39;s lives brief and brutish. This society, like the one portrayed in The Giver, is controlled by way of cruel authorities with their very own complicated agendas and secrets and techniques. And at the heart of both tales there is a young one that is given the accountability of protecting the reminiscence of the culture--and who unearths the vision to develop into it.

Kira, newly orphaned and lame from beginning, is taken from the turmoil of the village to live within the grand Council Edifice on account of her skill at embroidery. There she is given the task of restoring the historic pictures sewn at the gown worn at the annual spoil tune collecting, a solemn day-lengthy efficiency of the story in their worldcff0478#39;s earlier. Down the hall lives Thomas the Carver, a tender boy who works at the elaborate symbols carved at the Singercff0478#39;s group of workers, and a tiny woman who's being educated as the next Singer. Over the 3 artists hovers the threat of authority, seemingly kind however suffocating to their creativity, and the dark secret at the heart of the spoil tune.

With the help of a contented waif called Matt and his little dog, Kira eventually unearths the plant a good way to permit her to create the lacking color--blue--and, symbolically, to search out the braveness to form the future by way of following her art the placever it'll lead. With extraordinary originality, Lowry has once more created a vivid and unforgetdesk environment for this exciting story that increases profound questions concerning the mystery of art, the importance of reminiscence, and the centrality of love. (a long time 10 and older) --Patty Campbell
