This novel was wonderfully This was a moving story about a family affected by Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy.
A mother will cause and exaggerate medical illness in her children for attention herself.
As you might imagine, this can severely affect the lives of the children.
It is written from the perspective of one of the children who observed the abuse, but did not receive it, other than neglect.
The story moves back and forth from her adult present to the past, as a means of her piecing together and more fully understanding her dysfunctional childhood.
The authors writing style is very vivid and uses a lot of imagery, but sometimes I find it to be overdone.
The tasting of sounds and voices used intermittently after the protagonist was hit by lightning as a child sounded forced.
Other parts were wonderful.
The story was complex and the relationships between the characters was interesting.
I I feel that this book could have been very good, but simply fell short of my expectations.
There is no denying the writer has a way with words and a great ability to paint extremely emotionally relatable pictures, but the story was at slow and at times it felt like there was no real story.
What was happening was quite mundane, what held my interest most of the time was the flashbacks but they were fleeting and as the book progressed became shorter and less interesting.
I struggled to get through to the end of it because I didn't really expect there to be anything happening, since there really wasn't anything happening through out the book.
One page for an exciting incident, four for a pointless conversation.
I honestly didn't finish the book, I made it most of the way through and skimmed until it was the end.
Still, credit needs to be awarded Æ Nearer Than the Sky È Terribly disturbing and compelling at the same time.
I found this book hard to read and impossible to put down.
And I found myself thinking about it constantly.
This book is about the scary and unexplained mental disorder Munchausen by proxy, which causes women to harm their own children at whatever cost, and destroys families in the process.
It's about overcoming the terrible odds of a severely dysfunctional childhood and dealing with skeletons of a broken past.
I really enjoyed this author's writing style, how genuine all of the characters seem and how real the storyline feels.
I definitely recommend it! I love this author! Her writing is just beautifulthe descriptions and metaphors pull you right into the pagestruly with the characters.
I have read her other novels but not this early one because it wasn't yet on Kindle.
Greenwood has a remarkable and disarming way of approaching disturbing topics and creating sympathetic, soulful characters to untangle and examine them.
But still, this story of Munchausen syndrome by proxy is heartbreaking and disturbing .
Greenwood does a great job of putting the reader right on the fine line between sympathy and discomfort.
I only wish she had followed through on some of the story lines a little longerI would have gladly read several more chapters to hear how Indie does with Violet, where she ends up working .
and I found Lily's promises in the end a little unbelievable without more context
this is definitely my favorite by this author so far.
it's just so sad and pathetic, a story of Munchausen's syndrome! this is an absorbing tale and family is complicated! I think I should have listened to this on tape.
I got this feeling half way through that I wanted to know what happened but I didn't want to watch, like closing your eyes during a scary movie, but that is impossible to do when reading.
I powered through because I had to know what would happen to everyone.
this is a powerful book about a powerful disease.
Being a social worker, I have had one experience with Munchausen by proxy and it was devistating.
This book is a very realistic portrait of the disease and what it can do to a family and the difficult way to prove it.
It is a very serious book, it is raw with emotions and you need to be ready to step into the emotions wholeheartedly, but read it, embrace it and know that
