Life's Complexities and Pleasures
Based on the movie Carol, Chloe's story illuminates the inner lives of two lovers, Carol and Therese. The writer does a fine job of bringing to life the multitude of factors that are influencing their individual lives and in turn, their relationship. Both Carol and Therese are going through a journey of maturation, grieving significant losses in their lives, and accepting the current realities of their lives.
The New Start is an enjoyable read because it captures the complexity of the dynamics of Carol's and Therese's emotional lives, highlights the interim growth they have undergone, and paints a courageous, hopeful, feel-good ending.
Through Storms to Calm Waters
I appreciate being introduced to fan fiction through Chloe's writing. The story of Scarlett and Aurora is beautiful in many ways:
- it takes the reader on a whirlwind of adventures, challenges, tragedies, and triumphs,
- it explores fundamental human themes of desire to succeed, negative forces acting against the hero (in all of us), coming of age, power of family and love, regeneration and hope, and
- it demonstrates the skill of a master wordsmith in the making, crafting an easy to read, yet eloquent fan fiction piece.
I enjoyed reading this wonderful tribute to Cinderella with a sprinkling of Sleeping Beauty. I recommend it as an entertaining and inspiring read.
