Read The Guest Book The Guest Book Free read µ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Summary Ì PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ Sarah Blake An unforgettable love story a novel about past mistakes and betrayals that ripple throughout generations The Guest Book examines not just a privileged American family but a privileged America It is a literary triumph The Guest Book follows three generations of a powerful American family a family that “used to run the world”And when the novel begins in 1935 they still do Kitty and Ogden Milton appear to have everything perfect children good looks a love everyone envies But after a tragedy befalls them Ogden tries to bring Kitty back to life by purchasing an island in Maine T. She knew silence often flew in between families and roosted Slow inexplicable angers grew without roots Nothing special no story What the study of history had taught her clearly after years and years was that she might pull up the single moments from the darkness where they lay centuries old she might point to a spot in time a line in a diary the particular shredding of a blue ribbon used to tie a shoe she might string these together and say here is what happened And history would sit back on her heels and laugh and laugh Most families have secrets tucked away in every nook and cranny of their family history The Miltons are no different maybe just so because they are a rarefied breed of the American success story that most dream about but few obtain They expected the moon and they got it And they got it all all the while impeccably dressed The rich have immunity from the hiccups and bumps in the road than the rest of us do but as I always say Life doesn t let any of us escape scot free Tragedy has a way of finding every one sooner or later and those with money have not figured out a way to bribe deathyet After one such tragedy Ogden and Kitty Milton decide to buy an island off the coast of Maine A mystical place where fairy tales can be written We were talking about this place and she said very sweetly almost reverently Nothing will ever change Sunlight Starlight Drinks on the dock A single sail out in the bay It will never change It seems to promise You will not die On and on like a painting she said Here you are As long as the Island stands we stand Time never minds The Island remains the constant affirmation of the family s success through three generations of Miltons When the grandchildren struggle to afford to keep the Island the potential loss feels like failure but also something than that a loss of identity The influence of Ogden and Kitty on the family is perfectly illustrated in this moment where they are defended by one of their grandchildren Long after they have passed away their creed is still being believed We re different she answered simply We don t believe in taking advantage of a situation In grabbing for money How does Ogden strengthen the family fortune during World War Two Few family fortunes can survive scrutiny They are built on the backs of the poor They are made by flagrantly breaking the rules of fair play They are compromised by the corrupted hand shakes offered to the unscrupulous Are the Miltons different Is Ogden just a good shifter of wealth without ever getting his fingers smudged with dishonesty To shake things up Moss Ogden and Kitty s son invites his black friend Reg Pauling to the Island He will be the first black man to ever set foot on the Milton sacred soil Moss means well It is 1959 He feels the times are changing but really they are just changing in him The soul of America does not feel the guilt of their ancestors and racism is still a virus running rampant through their blood The bill is due Reg pushed echoing Jimmy Baldwin It is not coming due It is due And it must be paid or this shit will go on and on and on And so it goes on and on and on The Island the sanctuary proves fallible and when tragedy finds the family there it is uickly bundled and tucked away in one of those nooks I alluded to earlier It isn t spoken of Our family You think we ever heard the truth about anything Bad behavior bad breaks uncomfortable conversations and indiscretions are all neatly tucked into boxes wrapped in chains and clasped with a strong padlock The keys are thrown into the Atlantic How else can the family portray their flawless perfection It is a lot to live up to When the missteps are never discussed every descendent is completely unprepared for things to go wrong The shield of their grandfather is buried with him Bad things are simply not supposed to happen to a Milton Sarah Blake writes with lyrical ease I kept waiting for a jarring sentence a dialogue debacle or a plotting problem but they never happened You would almost think she was a Milton I did struggle with the book though I fully recognize Blake s writing gifts and maybe it has to do with my own disinterest in rich people worrying about first world problems but I wanted some jazz and this book is decidedly easy listening I will predict that many of you will love it and I will be happy that you do If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at
