Burning Bright | [Tracy Chevalier]

Burning Bright

London, 1792: The Kellaways move from familiar rural Dorset to the tumult of a cramped, unforgiving city. Against the backdrop of a city jittery over the increasingly bloody French Revolution, a surprising bond forms between Jem, the youngest Kellaway boy, and streetwise Londoner Maggie Butterfield. Their friendship takes a dramatic turn when they become entangled in the life of their neighbour, the printer, poet and radical, William Blake.

Publisher's Summary

London, 1792: The Kellaways move from familiar rural Dorset to the tumult of a cramped, unforgiving city. Against the backdrop of a city jittery over the increasingly bloody French Revolution, a surprising bond forms between Jem, the youngest Kellaway boy, and streetwise Londoner Maggie Butterfield.

Their friendship takes a dramatic turn when they become entangled in the life of their neighbour, the printer, poet and radical, William Blake. He is a guiding spirit as Jem and Maggie navigate the unpredictable, exhilarating passage from innocence to experience. Their journey influences one of Blake's most entrancing works.

    "Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about Burning Bright?

    It had no substance; no real story; a very weak plot; tedious!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tracy Chevalier again?

    Yes because some of her other books are brilliant. I'm so glad this wasn't my first Tracy Chevalier experience because it would also have been my last.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Cornelius Garrett?

    The narrator was OK but Dan Stevens is excellent.


    What character would you cut from Burning Bright?

    All of them!!


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointed with this. It's hard to believe that it could have been written by Tracy Chevalier.
