    ePUB Elizabeth Hartley Winthrop Û Û December MOBI ì december pdf, December ePUBThis is an intricately detailed novel covering only a few days in real time and as one other reviewer pointed out it's actually kind of too realistic Promising plot points appear the deaf boy next door Isabelle's latest doctor her sketchbooks that lead nowhere which happens often enough in real life but is frustrating in fiction where every word is supposed to mean something I kept wondering what made Isabelle stop speaking and the story was like a mystery to me in that sensebut the reader never really finds outIt's unclear just when the story is set which may be frustrating to some readers but the absence of cell phones and computers and the mention of an answering machine as if it's a newfangled device makes me think early to mid nineties which would make Isabelle about the same age as the authorI was a bit troubled by what seemed to be the ultimate message of the book that a family's love can cure a troubled child because that isn't always true

    ePUB Elizabeth Hartley Winthrop Û Û December MOBI ì december pdf, December ePUBChosen for its title alone – DECEMBER is Winthrop’s second novel but the first I have read Set in the week leading up to Christmas DECEMBER is not an edge of the seat read; it is not in your face dramatic either; what it IS is a sensitive observation of how each of the three main characters deals with Isabella’s self imposed silence It is also not so much a look at why she has chosen to be silent although that is hinted at it is about that she IS silent and she has imposed the silence on herself and doesn’t know how to break it The
