When will my book be dispatched from your warehouse?
The bond between Skeeter and China is especially moving and unexpected for most of us , and the ending suggests that bond is unending. Esch Batiste is a fourteen-year old girl quickly coming-of-age in an impoverished, coastal Mississippi town. Her mother died several years earlier, and she is left to live with her alcoholic father and three brothers.
The story begins twelve days prior to Hurricane Katrina. The family is busy preparing for the storm as Esch experiences her own inner storm; she is pregnant.
The theme of motherhood continues to weave itself throughout the story as the Batiste children scramble to collect food and protect their home from the impending storm.
The winner of multiple awards, including the National Book Award for Fiction , Salvage the Bones is an excellent choice for fans of literary fiction. This is an exquisitely written novel that follows the narrator, year-old Esch, her family, and friends over the course of 12 days. From the loss of Esch's mother and her alcoholic father's rough indifference to the raw cruelty of dog-fighting, to the casual passion of sex and the fierce loyalty of her brothers, Ward creates characters and a story as unforgettable as Esch's beloved Greek mythology.
It's not an easy read, but it's worth every minute. This story is primarily about a young girl's heartbreak, her grief over her mother, and the isolation she feels even while surrounded by her brothers and father. It is a story about family and a story about this young girl trying to love and be loved. Ward's writing makes you feel like you are there: The tension and anxiety builds from the beginning and then culminates with Hurricane Katrina's arrival.
This story sticks with you.
It's about poverty, teenagers, family, dogs, love, and hurricanes. Written as a family works to prepare for the coming hurricane Katrina. Along with poverty and absent parents the children deal with teenage pregnancy and a dying litter of puppies.
