Read & Download The Imposter Bride

Has she left and where did she go It is left to the daughter she abandoned to find the answers to these uestions as she searches for the mother she may never find or really know This book in my mind started out worthy of four stars but slowly lost them as I got further and further into the story The main problem I had with this book is that the central issue Ruth's curiosity about the reason her mother abandoned her as an infant is built up throughout the novel but in the end the reason is not all that interesting In fact Ruth's mother herself often says things like I can't even tell you why I did that or I can't even tell you why I felt that way I just did After 350 pages I expected there to be some big revelation is Ruth not really Lily's daughter or possibly not Nathan's How does Palestine and the fact that both Lily and Nina spent time there factor into the revelation But alas there is nothing so shocking in store And even of an issue is that the main character Ruth is fine with her mother's pathetic defense That's all I needed to know she thinks Which I suppose is good news for Ruth but bad news for the reader

When a young enigmatic woman arrives in post war Montreal it is immediately clear that she is not who she claims to be Her attempt to live out her life as Lily Azerov shatters as I think Nancy Richler wanted to write a good book The Impostor Bride dances around being good but lacks rhythm and grace and so slouches awkwardly around the dance floor making it awkward for everyone reading but the effort at goodness is altogether too sincere to turn away The plot offers originality a war bride shows up in Canada is scorned by her betrothed because he sees “something” amiss in her she marries his brother gives birth abandons the child and runs away We learn over the course of the novel the practical reasons for her abandonment the titular “impostor” and are meant I think to also contemplate the psychic and affective reasons she might also leave The book makes a sincere attempt to point the finger at the oft suggested “unspeakable” atrocities of the Holocaust as being “too much” for the young bride but without entering these events or even shadows of them into the plot and without offering Lily’s narrative point of view even a third person limited would have gone a long way these “unspeakable” reasons are left to the reader’s speculation and are not as Richler might have hoped compelling enough to justify the abandonment of a child Indeed our first person protagonist the abandoned daughter rightly points out that many of her peers have parents of this generation of “unspeakable” events who did not leave even if they do exhibit erratic behaviour so why did her mother leaveFor this reason the plot events that supposedly explain the abandonment do not hold water Nor does the eventual explanation of how members of her family knew and didn’t tell her Nor too the hastily and inexpertly constructed reunion scene not a spoiler I think because the progression of the plot is such that it can only resolve in a reunion A note on the reunion as it particularly irked me as it’s the climax and the apparent justification for so much weaving in and out of time we’re meant to get here not only were the scenes rushed especially when contrasted with the earlier scenes that explore in great length everything from depressed smoking to school yard bickering but the explanation offered by Lily which is in effect the explanation of “I have no explanation” would be fine indeed it would be complicated and profound if we had Ruth do something with the explanation think something about it reflect on it reject it respond react Instead we witness the reunion hear the paltry account of why she left find no explanation of the mysterious rocks hear nothing of Ruth’s reaction or thoughts A plot climax without an attendant climax in character development or theme And a frustrating plot climax at that because it doesn’t bring a satisfactory explanation maybe because there isn’t one not that there isn’t in the world but because Richler hadn’t imagined what that could beAnd so I wanted to like The Impostor Bride it had all the elements of Can Lit that I adore historical fiction strong female protagonists World War Two family drama And yet it’s not a book I’d ever take on a second date far too awkward for the effort Dancer of the Nile (The Gods of Egypt, out her life as Lily Azerov shatters as I think Nancy Richler wanted to write a good book The Impostor
