Heading Out to Wonderful

Heading Out to Wonderful Characters ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Robert Goolrick ´ 2 Download Oney A lot of money Heading Out to Wonderful is a haunting heart stopping novel of love gone terribly wrong in a place where once upon a time such things could happen. I m certain I noticed this book first due to the author Robert Goolrick I had read Reliable Wife and wanted to see what Goolrick would do this time out Also I immediately fell in love with the title Heading Out to Wonderful The imagery of this drew me right in Add the uote from the fly leaf Let me tell you something son When you re young and you head out to wonderful everything is fresh and bright as a brand new penny but before you get to wonderful you re going to have to pass through all right And when you get to all right stop and take a good long look because that may be as far as you re ever going to go and I knew I had to read it as soon as it hit our shelvesThere were parts of Heading Out to Wonderful that reminded me of Sharyn McCrumb s Ballad series and yet different It s that old time America in the hills of Virginia setting that promises peace and simplicity The story takes place in post World War II 1948 to be exact The town Brownsburg Virginia a place Goolrick describes as the kind of town that existed right after the war where the terrible American wanting hadn t touched yet where most people lived a simple life without yearning for things they couldn t have etcCharlie Beale wanders into town out of nowhere in his truck 2 suitcases on the seat one well worn with his clothes and steel butcher knives and the other made out of tin filled with money You re not uite certain where he came from but he tells the reader he s back from war and his daddy s dead All you know is he wants some land and a place to work and not much else He soon finds a tract of land outside the town by the river and a job with the only shop that sells meat and becomes part of the lives of the owner Will his wife Alma and their young son Sam Sam calls Charlie Beebo and it sticks All this sounds so innocent and yet somehow I knew before the story was done that it was not going to end well You can see the beauty of it and yet you know it can t last I won t tell you much than that Heading Out to Wonderful is a story filled to the brim with obsession power and passion It is sensuously erotic in the way that only Goolrick can write it Throughout Goolrick serenades us with mountain songs and this book begs a play list I can hear Eva Cassidy singing The Water is Wide maybe not the version the author intended but one of my favorites I found myself searching out Bluegrass man Mac Wiseman I don t think his song More Pretty Girls than One was uoted and I bet Charlie Beale wouldn t have heeded it anyway There were a couple of things I couldn t figure out and at first these annoyed me but then I thought the few uestions remaining for me might have been left so on purpose They are talking points and like Reliable Wife Heading Out to Wonderful should make a great book discussion

Robert Goolrick is a masterful storyteller He tells stories the old fashioned way long and languidly and full of description Love especially a great love never goes out of style Goolrick delivers He writes a big love story in a small town Everyone is involved right from the first Annual Oyster Fest deep in midsummer when Charlie shows his physical prowess and Sylvan wears her dark glasses and her red lipstick Sylvan Glass And Sylvan herself she was just as pretty as her name She had a country face young probably not much than twenty if thatHer lips were a crimson slash her hair pulled up in gleaming blonde waves on top of her head held with tortoise shell combs studded with rhinestones She wore dark sunglasses a thing no other woman in town even thought to ownShe had a perfect figure rounded soft and fleshy for a young girl although she seemed willowy next to her bulky husband We sense right at the start that a storm is on the horizon but I don t think any of us are prepared for the finale But by then Goolrick has led us long and well and we react like his town folk good people all We feel helpless in the face of such a love and wish we d never known itBut I have to mention my favorite character though I doubt I would have ever gotten close to her if I lived there in Brownsburg Claudie is like none other with long thin fingers like the tines of a fork and blessed with a special skill to sew like no one else She created clothes for the townspeople especially for the lovely Sylvan who wanted those dresses she saw in films and magazines and had a figure to match the finery I nearly wept with admiration and joy to read of Claudie arriving in front of the town at the endNext came Claudie Wiley dressed fantastically as though for a Negro Baptist wedding in New York City bright in fuschia cut from a pattern she had found in the back of Vogue magazine and adapted to suit her figure with a hat to match and a veil and shoes all the same intense color the color of sunset the last burst of color before darkness fallsShe was some kind of character with a life and a mind of her own She is worthy of a book devoted just to herview spoilerI lavish praise on Goolrick for his skills so perhaps you won t mind if I say that the crisis when it came did not ring entirely true to me The key may have been that Charlie was Sylvan s Hollywood and therefore may have seemed unreachable and unreal and ultimately unknowable We did really only know Charlie s side of the drama But I felt we were led to believe in this love only to have it shattered in front of us for a poor excuse of a husband and his ridiculous marriage contract none of which would could should sway someone under the influence of a great love And the ending did not suit me it seemed too dramatic for the reality But perhaps in the eyes of a Hollywood star it was just the right kind of ending hide spoiler

    [KINDLE] Heading Out to Wonderful AUTHOR Robert Goolrick This is one of the silliest books I have ever read There is just so much wrong with it that it's hard to know where to start is it the plot the dialogue the narrative or the characters ? Why would a man bring a 6 year old boy along on his trysts with his married lover and swear the child to secrecy? He didn't need to babysit He didn't need the company And why did the child's parents let him continue to accompany the man
