Eve Green – Susan Fletcher. Published March 14, 2013 by bibliobeth. I am a big fan of Susan Fletcher’s second novel The Oystercatchers (which I actually read before reading this) so I couldn’t wait to start this, especially as it was a Whitbread/Costa award winner

Eve Green – Susan Fletcher. What’s it all about?: Pregnant with her first child, Eve Green recalls her mother’s death when she was eight years old and her struggle to make sense of her parents’ mysterious romantic past. I am a big fan of Susan Fletcher’s second novel The Oystercatchers (which I actually read before reading this) so I couldn’t wait to start this, especially as it was a Whitbread/Costa award winner. The story is mainly set around a specific period of Eve’s life, when she was eight years old, although the story flits back and forwards between this and the present day Eve who is expecting a baby.

This is a beautiful story and beautifully written. I read this book years ago and somehow my copy disappeared so I bought a new one. I reread the book and enjoyed it as much as I did the first time. Children see things differently than adults, and the world seen by Eve is clear and without adult excuses. She is genuine and you feel like you are living in her rural town with its rolling hills and stone walls and old homes - and it's gray winds and it's secrets. This is a story where a child struggles with her conscience in the very adult world of buried and conveniently forgotton pasts. If you love getting lost in a vivid telling of another time and place where the world appears simple with characters that are anything but - you will love this book. Through Ms.Fletcher's writing you are instantly transported into the mind of Eve and the world she sees, in words and descriptions almost poetically written. The story flows effortlessly - read it. PS. I have never reviewed anything before and am not a writer but I absolutely love love love this book. enjoy.

Very well written quiet novel about life on a farm in Wales. It was a bit unbelievable in that the protagonist fell in love with her true love at the age of 8 or 9 and he was a young man then but I was willing to go along with it because it was a lovely story.

OK but I read this after I had read Corrag, which i have read about 4 times. Wish she would write more about the highlands. Corrag was not [possible to put down.

Did not want this book to end. Could there be a sequel? Just started her second book Corrag. Only a couple of pages in and already hooked.

Eve is a young woman, approaching the birth of her first child and is reflecting back on her own childhood and her family. Her mother died when she was young, leaving her to be returned to live with grandparents in Wales that she barely knew. She knows of her father only through the mementos and notes that her mother kept. Her life in rural Wales was a big change, and as a child she also had to deal with the prejudices against her mother. There was also a terrible tragedy in town in the disappearance of another young girl and the investigation surrounding it. Eve has kept a secret from that time after making a terrible mistake. The story slowly unfolds her current story and the secrets from the past.

"Eve Green" is a debut novel by the British author Susan Fletcher. This book has won the Whitbread prize, and I think the prize was well deserved.

Eve Green is 29 years old, expecting her first child, and living on a remote farm in Wales. She decides that the last moment before turning thirty is a good time for putting order in her memories - and so the readers get to know her unusual life story, beginning with the death of her mother when Eve was seven years old. Since Eve has never known her father, she has to move to her grandparents, and change a familiar neighborhood in Birmingham for quiet Welsh farm.

There are many secrets in Eve's life, and they are revealed slowly and gradually - somehow retracing the painful process of reconstruction of the past in the mind of a child. Eve seems to attract mystery, looking for friendship with loners and trying to dig out long forgotten or traumatic episodes. During her childhood on the farm, enough tragic and sad things happen to plant more questions in her head - Rosie, a happy, even cocky, 12-year-old, suddenly disappears... Conversations with neighbors are helpful, but the greatest help is provided by her mother's old notes found by Eve in the shoebox under the bed.

I cannot decide if I like Eve, or if I do not - she is certainly a character and has the mind of her own. I definitely liked her grandparents, who are full-blooded characters, as well ad Billy and Eve's mother. I am not sure what to think about Daniel... He is too ideal for me.

The novel's pace is slow, the atmosphere a little eerie, the setting of the plot in Wales is the book's great asset. I think some of the threads could have been better with little shifts in dynamics and emphasis, but all in all, it is a very good novel, and definitely a great first novel, only encouraging the reader to get deeper into Fletcher's prose.
