Motherless is the second novel of the American Tragedy in Trilogy series. I reviewed the first novel “Fatherless” here. The third novel “Childless” is due to be released this fall.The novel picks up on many of the same characters introduced in the first novel, but some decades have elapsed as it takes place in modern time. The themes of the first novel remain as it deals with the toxic culture and the effects on families and Catholics dealing with their work environments. Retaining the f [...]
Although I really wanted to enjoy this book by a Catholic author, I really did not. It was really confusing, jumping points of view every chapter. It could just be me, as I can sometimes have concentration issues. I did love the way the subject matter was handled, and hope to see more books like that in future. Also, the technical aspect of the writing is excellent, just too much for me--I could see this as two books as opposed to one.
I received this book in a giveaway and will give a candid, honest review. However, I need to state right from the beginning that I am not Catholic, and the concept of praying to the Virgin Mary is foreign to me. For that reason, I am totally avoiding any doctrinal commentary and sticking with my opinion of the book as a contemporary Christian fiction.This book raises many interesting, human questions: When does an individual or an institution have to take an unpopular but morally correct stand? [...]
As much as I want to wholeheartedly support authentically Catholic writers, especially in the area of fiction, it's my opinion that this book contains characters that really seem too good to be true in their knowledge of, and adherence to, Catholic teachings. Plus, the long explanatory pages of Catholic doctrine and teachings may turn off those readers who are seeking truth, but won't like the very obvious, heavy-handed way in which it's presented in this book. Gail has done a remarkable thing w [...]
The sequel to Fatherless, this one was even better. The story continues with the characters from the first book, but it is set in our current time (30 years later). Brian Gail makes the characters come alive and you feel as if you know them. You find yourself cheering them on to do the right thing for the Church. A book that's hard to put down (I was up many late nights reading this book!). Can't wait for the next one, Childless, to come out.
A follow-up novel to Fatherless. A very portent novel. Though fiction, it reads more like a history novel. There are some wonderful teaching moments in this book. If you came of age in the Catholic Church in the 80's, this series is a must read. Not only will this book draw you in and keep you turning it's pages, it may very well provide the Catechism our adult Catholics desperately need.
The first one, Fatherless, was 5-star all the way; the second of the trilogy fell short of that, but still worth the read. While Fatherless brilliantly brought together several strands in the evil web known as the culture of death, Motherless focuses primarily on IVF and ESCR I sure wish Fr. John Sweeney was real!
It's vacation and I'm being lazy and not wanting to write a review.I'll post a link to reviews by my dd catholicdiscussion.wordpress.c But I disagree with her on the book being preachy.
This is the second book I won from and have never received.What's up with winning,if yu never receive the book?This is the second book that I have won,which never arrived in my mailboox!
When I got home last night, a box was waiting on the door step with this book in it - that I won from ! I was just thinking it's about time to start a new book. I'm excited to sit down and read it!
If only this book weren't true.
The plot was captivating, however, I found the writing style quite shallow.
Better than the first of the series, but I was still bothered by the focus on women's reproductive rights and birth control issues.
Prophetic, and therefore a little scary. Great book.
Good, but not as good as Fatherless.
I definitely enjoyed more than Fatherless and felt the story was smoother and more seamless. Brough tup interesting ethical issues.
The 2nd book in Brian Gail's trilogyep reading!
