Biografía del autor
Words without rhythm play like the drone of a fiddle string. I prefer words to hum. It is my intention to write prose that invites the reader’s ear to hear the equivalent of melodies. True, we read stories with our imaginations, but when we look to our ears to seize the soft syllables and hard consonants twined in rhythmic breaths, we are moved to coddle the bliss out of them and remember. Linda Condon has written more than forty children’s songs as part of her Appletowne Playground Collection. She lives in Litchfield, Connecticut, and majored in English, with a Concentration in Writing, and a Minor in Music, from St. Joseph University in West Hartford, Connecticut.
Descripción del libro
Stellenbosch haunts Liam Baillie. It lives loud in his memory like a fast-moving cloud close enough to touch. The truth? He is lost in Bloemfontein, the City of Roses and longs to find his wife. With the help of Lieutenant Nobantu of the South African Police Service, he searches for the truth which is as elusive to him as daylight beguiled by a sweep of shadow. But Nobantu probes with an easiness of manner as warm as her handshake, and Liam reveals his story. From Ladysmith to Stellenbosch, to the sweet hills of Armagh, he wants only to go home to Canaan, Connecticut, where foxtail grasses yellow and bittersweet twines the posts and rail, where the brightest Sunday in October promises a good day to travel. But the truth is the only way home, and Liam Baillie tells Nobantu: I’ve been too long in Stellenbosch, Lieutenant. How can I be certain what I am about to tell you is the truth or a waking dream?

Below, I've included the first few lines from the story, as the setting seems to emerge from there, the brightest Sunday in October, where beyond the thicket foxtail grasses yellowed and bittersweet twined the posts and rail. The setting begins in autumn in the Litchfield hills, Canaan at its peak. The story then moves to South Africa, to KwaZulu Natal, to Ladysmith, then to Free State and Bloemfontein, and visits briefly in the Western Cape to Stellenbosch. These are the first few lines: “The truth? I’ve been too long in Stellenbosch, Lieutenant. How can I be certain what I’m about to tell you is the truth or a waking dream?” “You are in Bloemfontein, Mr. Baillie.” “Yes, the City of Roses. I remember.” “What else do you remember?” “Her face against the pane, one last look, beyond the thicket where foxtail grasses yellowed and bittersweet twined the posts and rail, where the brightest Sunday in October promised a good day to travel.” The mood is always hopeful, even when circumstances challenge and the outlook bleak. Liam Baillie searches for his wife who is lost somewhere in South Africa, but the real story is his search for truth. What he is really looking for is the way home.
Lo que debe evitarse
Avoid glitz, dazzle, modern elements of pop culture. Looking for a warm, inviting, interesting cover that boldly and simply invites the reader into the adventure, for the search for Liam Baillie is a long pilgrimage of sorts, unexpected events, lots of background story, with his true purpose to find his way home. On the surface, home is in Canaan, CT, a farm. Here's a description: The sun pulling high in the sky, full of itself, preening as it brushed like a wildfire across the fields and far hills of Litchfield County. It seized the maples beyond the frog pond and flared up along the riparian buffer of cottonwoods that shadowed the property.
