When Darkness Loves Us review ç 103 read & download When Darkness Loves Us As the dim witted woman who was born without a nose but Martha's mind wasn't always a blank slate Unlocking the monster buried deep in her memories may bring back the sparkling child she once was or it may send those around her crashing down into the nightmares of a little girl gone wron UPDATED WITH A REVIEW OF THE SECOND NOVELLA BEAUTY ISI don t even have a proper GR shelf to put this story in it s that uniue I found this book consists of two novellas When Darkness Loves Us and Beauty Is on when I was looking for some Theodore Sturgeon books He knew the author and wrote the forward to the bookWhen Darkness Loves UsIt s the sixties and Sally Ann is enjoying resting in the sun while her new husband rides a tractor on the family farm She goes exploring and finds some steps that lead to an underground area where she and other children played although it was deemed to dangerous and now has a wooden door with a padlock on it to keep future children from exploring But the door is open and she goes exploring too far in to warn her husband as he s padlocking the door that she s in there She is two months pregnant when she is lost to the world above herHer husband and family assume she ran off and she creates a life for her and her son Clinton in the darkness of the caves There is an underground lake that provides water and they feast on moss slugs fish and the occasional food that is washed in during a heavy rainClinton loves the only home he has ever known but Sallie Ann desires to feel the sun on her skin and breathe fresh air and most of all to see her beloved Michael again And so she sets out on a journey to find her way back to civilization where much in her old world has changedThe character development in When Darkness Loves Us is excellent and the menace mixed in with the sweetness of this story makes it hard not to read straight through in one sitting Unlike a lot of the stories I read I had no idea where this one was heading I highly recommend this to anyone who s tired of the same old same old plot and characterization in their fiction I will definitely seek out this writer s other works and look forward to reading the second novella in this bookBeauty IsBeauty Is is the second novella in the book and it is beautifully written than the first story if that s possibleThis is the story of Fern a good woman mother and wife who believes she has a gift from God to heal people of their sickness and her retarded daughter Martha born without a nose a despicable act Fern s husband believes is punishment for Fern not letting sickness take its course in humans the way nature intends it toIt s really hard to accurately describe just what this story is about and to explain the beauty of Engstrom s prose The story is about a simple farm family s life and a couple s struggle to raise the freak of the town Everyday life on the farm and in town is exuisitely revealed in each chapter but there s a dark sense of foreboding from some of the shiftier characters in the story like Leon a young man who offers to help around the farm and who starts to fall in love with the fiftysomething Martha Leslie a bitter disliked town drunk who feels entitled to take what others work for and Priscilla a gold digging hair stylist who befriends Martha for uestionable reasonsThe only thing I didn t like about this story is the abrupt ending which played like an ending to a horror short story As much as I like horror short stories this story rises way above all that and I expected something than this little shock of an ending that seemed out of place Why have I never heard of Elizabeth Engstrom before A Kingdom of Dreams resting in the sun while her new husband
