DefianceR which she stood trialDefiance pulls us into the world of a lonely defiant brilliant woman a misfit child a girl genius who left the working class Irish Catholic world of Fall River Massachusetts a stone's throw away from Cambridge who entered the halls of academic privilege at the age o. Is this a novel A poem perhaps An ode or an elegy An Elegy on Pain and Suffering A prelude to Buddhism The world of pain and suffering where the compassion has not entered A world where compassion is meaningless because it is not cannot be understood Indeed compassion in Defiance is not real This is a world where life lacks any possibility of sense Much like the one we live inThis is the Fall of humankind perhaps correctly of womankind because the suffering is tied to being a woman It is a response to the horror of male betrayal to male betrayal of the very possibility of compassion The only salvation lies in death death and revenge beyond exploitation by those who want to bring about a resurrection to continued sufferingAnd what pain and suffering it's all there if a human can feel it unwanted birth poverty Irish Catholic parents drunken father religious mother suffering sexual abuse in front of her young daughter our heroine Bernadette illiterate brother abused by Catholic priest and dies at war genius protagonist who cannot fit into this family this world Added to this is the betrayal of the one source of comfort The betrayal that the reader is aware of in the tree house from the first page but must wait until the end to confirm That betrayal however is there on every page And then comes abortion the sexual perversion the resentment the revenge the violence the murder and it goes on page after page And the death wish that the reader seizes upon with every hope that Bernadette will die I continued to read with a dread that she would survive that there would be a stay of execution The author Carole Mason keeps the reader suspended in the upper branches of the trees where the possibility of the fall into life suffering is always thereThis book is not for everyone but it is so well written There is so much pain that it would seem to be too much for one book for one life but it isn't too much It is so very real I don't know how Carole Maso wrote this how she continued to write someone's pain for page after page

This novel is written as a stream of consciousness of a murderer The way this murderer's brain sends her endless loops of the same information memories mathematics arguments wishes the way anybody's brain does makes you see that she could be anybody But despite the universal form the particulars of the content of her looping thought let the reader realize that in fact she couldn't be just anyone She has to be someone who has suffered loss and humiliation at unflagging levels for most of her life It's a riveting book
