Wednesday’s Child is a well-written story about Violet and her life. From a young age, she loses her parents and is brought up by her neighbour. Working at a factory at the age of 14, she tastes the bitter fact of reality so soon.
When Violet joins the army, she learns the horrors of war. As a soldier just seventeen years of age, she encounters many ups and downs. Her marriage to a soldier is another added drama, and so we go through Violet’s life with a hint of salt and watch her grow.
I found so many of Violets experiences to be happening too fast. There were many social issues discussed. Homosexuality, abuse, depression and the horrors of war were well blended into the storyline, and I believe they took an important role.
I liked watching Violet grow, and it was nice to see the character’s personality become wiser and happier.
I recommend this book to fiction lovers.Tweet
