THE NOVEL

“Here are things I loved about this story. First off, the narrative is done in the first person and this brings the reader immediately into the protagonist's viewpoint. The first person narrative can be tricky especially for a first-time novelist, but the author did a fairly good job. The setting also comes across beautifully throughout the story with many historical and cultural references. Readers will love the protagonist and her growth curve. She is portrayed as the symbol of today's working class and she incarnates the fears and frustrations of many men and women of today. Bernice Rathe by Bea Giovanni is an interesting read.”
