Book Review: The Journey Home by Willy Nyweningcategories: Book, Struggles, Disappointment, Hardships, Children
The Journey Home by Willy NyweningThe Journey Home, by Willy Nywening, is a heartbreaking story about two children that experience more struggles and disappointment than children should ever know. Willy is able to capture her reader with her vivid imagery, and incredible use of similes and metaphors. Her ability to captivate an audience stems from her talent of descriptive writing. From the very first page to the last the reader is able to follow the picturesque story quite vividly. The sadness that erupts on the first page hooks the reader and never releases its hold until the end.
The young characters of Martha and Jamie really tug on heartstrings as the reader follows their journey. A strong sibling bond and protective relationship between this brother and sister is exemplified; it illustrates that hardships are easier to cope with when love is present. The reader feels sadness for the children, but, is comforted by the strength they show to cope with what life has offered them.
At times the reader is left frustrated with the children's caregivers and wondering when the siblings will receive the parental love and guidance they so desperately crave. As this page-turner progresses the reader becomes settled with the justices that prevail for the children.
In 1997, Willy published a daily inspirational anthology called Sister Stories, which is also a definite must-read. [by Andrea Kouroufexis]
