The Brontë Plot is full of texture and light. Like an old, faded, priceless antique photo the contrast is reduced but you are left with a feeling of curiosity mixed with wonder and awe. It is modern yet timeless; containing layers upon layers of rich descriptive dialogue.
Scripture is written throughout the book showing the biblical basis for the story, allowing you to delve deeper into the story behind the story. The age-old, unchanging, life-giving story. Parable Treasury is a good Christian family story.
Walker’s presentation of the future is lurid and concerningly close to that which may be in our near future. It is claustrophobic and brings into play the worst of our historic and present selves. There is no nuclear family unit portrayed. It is elitist and hedonistic; a bit too close for comfort.
