Re: VOY: Children of the Storm by Kirsten Beyer Review Thread (Spoiler

Just finished Beyer's Children of the Storm. Very nicely put together. I've already noted its virtues above.

One final thought: Beyer is clearly aware of the parent's divided heart, and puts it on the page clearly and with feeling, with Miral and her parents. I see Beyer is also a new parent, combining work (writing) with parenthood. Another 'up yours' to Cyril Connolly's 'pram in the hall'.
