    review The Desert Sky Before Us PDF/EPUB The Desert Sky Before Us Free read Õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ó Anne Valente This book was awful Throughout the book the author goes on about the environment and plane crashes yet that story line went nowhere Billie doesn’t really talk about why she did what she did in any detail The sisters were whiny and annoying And the thing I really didn’t like was that there were no uotations around the dialogue

    PDF/EPUB The Desert Sky Before Us Free read Õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ó Anne Valente A very well written literary novel The Desert Sky Above Us is a step up from my usual mysterythriller On the surface it's the story of a road trip taken by two sisters after their mother's death As the sisters drive across the country following clues left by their archaeologist mother they begin to really talk to each other for the first time in years unraveling thread by thread secret hurts and long held misunderstandi

The Desert Sky Before Us Free download Ô 0 Anne Valente ó 0 review Ngly endless days on the road soon take their toll forcing Rhiannon and Billie to confront their hostilities and revisit old memories both good and badAs they travel across the heart of America and as a series of plane crashes in the news make their journey all the urgent the two sisters begin to rediscover each other and to uncover their late mother’s veiled second life taking them on an unexpected emotional journey inward and forcing them to come to terms with their own choices in li. 455Getting to spend over 400 pages with Anne Valente s characters was such a treat I m so impressed at how real they feel in short stories and in a novel format you can get so much out of them especially the characters of The Desert Sky Before Us Rhiannon is an ex race driver her sister Billie has just been released from a six year prison sentence and their mother a renowned archaeologist has created a sort of a treasure hunt for her daughters before an illness took her During the journey that the treasure hunt develops into you slowly get to know Rhiannon and Billie in a way that is almost painfully real I was sucked in right from the first page needing to know what brought the sisters in their current circumstances and whether they ll succeed in reconnecting with each other While of all this inner turmoil is going on with the sisters the world shows signs of chaos repeated airplane crashes droughts and endless rain Valente doesn t fail to provide an environmental aspect which I was thankful for I would have appreciated it if climate change had even direct and prominent role but then again The Desert Sky Before Us really is about the mental journey of the two characters and as such it s brilliant

The Desert Sky Before Us Free download Ô 0 Anne Valente ó 0 review From award winning author Anne Valente comes this poignant and unforgettable literary novel of two estranged sisters one a former racecar driver and the other a recently released prisoner who embark on a road trip together to complete the scavenger hunt their mother designed for them before her deathWhen Billie is released from a correctional facility in Decatur her sister Rhiannon is there to meet her even though the two haven’t seen each other in months Painful secrets and numerous u. My Rating35Favorite uotesRhiannon knows the word sorry will never find its way from Billie s throatShe watches him and knows that her anger with him is nothing compared to the heavy weight of what she s dragged around a prison cell for six years and across so many highways to this place this moment that in the end she is most disappointed in herself no one elseMy ReviewThere was family drama aplenty as well as a long and arduous road trip full of broody tension and uncertainty as two sisters followed the bread crumb path across the country that their recently deceased mother had set for them in her sparse journal a journal that gave no explanations just GPS coordinates and poorly drawn images I was riddled with curiosity yet increasingly impatient with the incrementally slow pace and confounding nature of their discoveries Gradually old resentments lies secrets and jealousies unspooled as the tedium and miles were racked up The main characters were hard for me to care for as they were both stalled and discontent with their lives and extremely closed off annoyingly so Billie was an immature screw up with an innate sense of inadeuacy and unpredictable volatile and impulsive behavioral reactions These were not individuals I would willingly choose to spend my time with yet I was curious about the mysterious clues and geocaching I confess I struggled valiantly with this ponderously slow and angsty yet informative and pensive book The book contained a thought provoking story yet used far too many pages in the telling and left me with a sense of emotional exhaustion and a bitter sense of dissatisfaction with the ending but maybe I just didn t catch all the ethereal connections I did glean an awareness of issues and phenomenon I had never before encountered and felt the need to hit Mr Google for additional research on clear air turbulence and The Spiral Jetty I may never fly again

Ooh boy This book tried to do too much and did it dully Is this a commentary on grief Or is this a commentary on climate change You can have both narratives in the same story but make it interesting For being adult women the characters displayed a lot of teen angst and were really one note and boring The whole plane crash due to climate change was unnecessary The way it was tied to the grief storyline was flimsy at best and lazy at worst And as someone who curses like a sailor I found the f word to be used a little gratuitously Maybe because I didn t get a personality from either of the main characters the use of the f word just did not seem to fit Anyway this is not a bad book in terms of being offensive or problematic IMO But it was definitely not the book for me
