This week is a match between category and book that was meant to be!
Themes of Justice:
What really made my skin crawl was the behind doors schemes, the obvious quest to pervert the course of justice. How some people sleep at night, I’ll never know. Have times changed? One would hope so, but who really knows unless you have the misfortune of getting caught up in a legal ramification. It was one thing for John Henry and Mary to lie. The accused Tramp was also not a surprise, he was after saving his own neck in the end. But a judge? Lawyers? It was an absolute disgrace.
Half Moon Lake is a story of injustice, of the haves and have nots. It’s an excellent novel, extremely thought provoking, harrowing at times. I was enraged even as I read the final sentence – the author will know why!
