Well, I am in a pickle, aren’t I? How does one describe a great scene in a book without totally ruining it for those of you who may wish to read it in the distant future…?
Let’s see (she says, cautiously); the book that contains (one of) my favourite scene(s) is Thunderwith by Libby Hathorn.
It truly is a beautiful book. It follows the story of Lara, who, after her mother’s death, goes to live in the Australian outback with her father, his new wife and his four children. Feeling alone and unwanted after her father leaves on business, Lara discovers the companionship of a dog whom she names Thunderwith, a loving creature who seems to arrive with the lightning of storms when Lara needs him most.
My favourite scene is towards the end of the book; it was always memorable to me because it felt, quite simply, powerful. The writing was spectacular, and the emotions that Hathorn weaved into the pages brought me to tears.
I certainly hope that some of you have read it, or may now consider doing so, because it really is a great read.
