REVIEW The Colour of Milk

The Colour of MilkAs she does so through four seasons of one extraordinary year she discovers that nothing comes for free Told. HOLY EFFING TOUR DE FORCE Yes this book is really sad I hate using the word heartbreaking but it's apt here This is one of those books where I want to say yes it's going to devastate you but TOO BAD MAN You know what's devastating How women were treated 200 years ago Somehow Nell Leyshon captures the utter banality of everyday abuse and intellectual oppression of women living on a farm in England in the 1830's There is no anachronistic rebellion here just acceptance of small lives lived as little than chattel Except there is this one girl illiterate who sees the truth in her surroundings and can't help but call people out when they're not being honest with themselves This is Mary your new favorite character You will want to hang out with her You will want to save her But she is so real so perfectly a product of her time and place that you will just have to accept that the past is the past and be inexpressibly grateful that you live NOW ESPECIALLY if you are female

My introduction to Nell Leyshon was through 'Memoirs of a Dipper' which I really enjoyed That inspired me to read 'The Colour of Milk' Both books share similarities a first person narration by an unlikely narrator and hints of the denouement throughout the taleOverall I thought 'Memoirs of a Dipper' was successful than 'The Colour of Milk' That said the evocation of Mary a farmer's daughter in 1831 felt very credible and well researched and the story is tragic and compelling It's also a very short and easy to read bookMary who narrates the book is outspoken and her honesty often gets her into trouble with her family and later in the story the vicar's family where she goes to work as a maid To say any about the plot would be to ruin a powerful and original story I will be reading by Nell Leyshon
