THE SILENT SCREAM As an early teenager, Sharon moved with her family to a part of the country not far from where she had grown up, but culturally, it was a million miles away. She endured the hardships of not being accepted in school or in the community and then one day she realized that she was a stranger in her own family. Sharon tried to reason whether her parents had always been that way or if they had been coerced into accepting a strange way of life. They had become treasonous enemies against her very soul. Eventually she was forced to change, or become, a good actor in order to survive to adulthood. She “felt confused not knowing what to do or where to go, she was only sixteen...” Thinking she would endure a loveless marriage and build a normal life for herself, she made mistakes. She had no intention of letting the children she bore become a product of that destructive environment - she would flee one way or another. Later in life, thousands of miles away, she encountered even greater challenges than she had experienced in the place from which she had escaped Relative power governed the world of her teens. A turn to politics showed her another world of falsehoods. Greed, money, and the search for truth ruled her life as an adult. There was no winning; no life of normalcy - until the truth finally set her free. Like following a true compass, she found her refuge and learned that success is a journey not a destination.

A wonderfully imaginative and surprising debut novel about the inexorable approach of modernity. "Imagine the time of my grandfather's grandfather, when the darkness was newly separated from the light. Society was only a shadowy image of what it would soon become. This was Mandragora before my invention and all that it set in motion."-from The Testament of Yves Gundron So begins Yves Gundron's account of the strange events to befall Mandragora. It is a desperate, primitive place-plowing was only recently introduced, candles do not exist, and the inhabitants know no number larger than twenty. Nevertheless, there was little conflict before Yves's invention-the harness-irrevocably transformed the Mandragorans' lives. Yves's manuscript, which bears witness to these changes, appears to have been prepared for publication by an academic named Ruth Blum. But what at first seems a historical document proves to be something else entirely. Yves's brother, Mandrik le Chouchou, the town mystic, regales his fellow villagers with exotic tales of his travels to "Indochina." And when Yves recalls the words of a song that is recognizably a blues lyric, we know that either Ruth Blum is up to something or Mandragora is not what it seems. In this playful and adventurous debut, Emily Barton explores the two-edged sword of technology, asking what is lost in our fervent pursuit of modernity.
