    Patchwork MOBI Ì Paperback patchwork free, Patchwork ePUBI finished this last week but had to sit on it a while For my Read Around The World bookclub we travelled to Zambia this month and this is the story of Pumpkin who we meet as a child living with her single mom Mistress to someone of standing Pumpkins father The book stood out most for its two abrupt changes of narrative in the middle and then at the end Still the overwhelming feeling I have is that I am glad that I read it Glad I read a different story of someone whose life is different and yet relatable This whole reading around the world project is breaking me open in a way that’s hard to describe Even if I don’t like the book we chose I still feel I am coming to understand just how big this planet is How differe

    Patchwork MOBI Ì Paperback patchwork free, Patchwork ePUBThis is the author's first adult novel though she has written several short stories and poems for both children and adults The first part has nine year old Pumpkin as she is known by everyone as the main character; in the second part she is a mother herself To me the first part works; the second not so well Maybe it is because the mis perceptions of a child are easier to accept than those of an adult

    Patchwork MOBI Ì Paperback patchwork free, Patchwork ePUBSet in Zambia “Patchwork” tells the poignant story of Pumpkin a bastard child who grows up to become an emotionally tormented woman The novel opens in the 1970s when Pumpkin is a 9 year old girl Her father is a wealthy businessman with a family of his own; her mother is an alcoholic who believes that someday Pumpkin’s father will marry her Because of her mother’s drinking problem her father eventually takes Pumpkin to live with his family a decision that his wife does not handle well The tale of Pumpkin’s childhood is heartbreaking the neglect and poverty of life with her mother the longing she has for her father’s love the aching estrangement she feels from her father’s family In the second portion of the book Pumpkin is an adult and she is still reacting to her childhood scars and trying to understand her relationship to her parentsPumpkin is a true to life character whose actions are understandable though not commendable The author makes the reader want

    Patchwork MOBI Ì Paperback patchwork free, Patchwork ePUBThis book is well written and gives a good picture of life in Zambia across social classes The story is not an uplifting one none of the characters are at all likeable and the author doesn't resolve the dilemmas by the end of the bookSo why did I read it apart from just because I wanted a book from Zambia for my World TourBecause it really is good a page turner just not one to make you laugh

    Patchwork MOBI Ì Paperback patchwork free, Patchwork ePUBPatchwork follows the life of Pumpkin first when she was around nine and then in the second part in her early 30s The book describes a childhood that had this girl stranded between the worlds of her rich dad whose illegitimate child she was and her alcoholic mother The story also covers how some hurt that happened in the past can have wide reaching impacts in the life of people and their families I thought the book was easy to read the narrative just suc
