INSIDE MY HEAD
The story is about a boy, Ennis Whelan, a gifted creature whose strangeness would become increasingly discernible to his family as he grows up.
Dr. Owen Whelan and his wife Sarah, both Irish immigrants, have been living the American dream, as well as raising seven bright and expressive children. Their youngest Ennis, however, has since birth, been a bit of a mystery. Ennis was always small, meek and frightfully odd but there is so much more to him than anyone could have imagined. His sister Teagan grows increasingly suspicious of his behaviour but their mother dismisses her claims, until the day he starts healing people. When Ennis ultimately reveals the gift of sight, he questions his father about visions of his past, including his voyage to America in 1844. Owen prayed he’d never have to share those tragic memories but he will share them, when he realizes he has no choice. Ennis’ life may depend on it.
Ms. Bartletts’s writing has sincere austerity, and the story infused with a certain innocence, makes the book quite appealing. I particularly adored the relationships, the family ties, the way author has managed to present these relationships in almost a sacred sense. It was natural, with a classical touch. A very good read, the book would leave you with a feeling to comfort and ease.
