Contemporary, U.S.-based story of how a family, torn apart by the pursuit of unworthy dreams, recovers in their own ways involving commercial success, sexual discovery, and revenge.
I received this book from the author for a honest review.
The author's use of words and language is like a beautiful string of pearls, masterful storytelling throughout the tale. The dialogue was at times a bit stiff and theatrical, and at times I would have wished to have more details of the events happening, but overall very enjoyable reading.
Turner's Point is stand-alone continues to Slipping on Stardust. I think a reader might get a better insights to the story at the beginning, if the previous book was read first.
The cast of characters is plentiful, their lives and stories are bound together like a braid, their reflections in life are to the past, present, and to the future.
Social issues such as gay-love, -marriage, and -adoption are touched, as well as reactions to the racially mixed couples.
Despite the warning of the sexually explicit material, the love scenes are described in rather clean and tasteful way.
The story was very different from what I normally read, and I understand I'm not the main target audience for the book. But I enjoyed the author's style of writing and the use of English language in such a beautiful way.
