Twice The Speed Of Dark

What does it mean to care about the deaths of distant strangers? What does it take to bear the loss of a child? by Lulu Allison

Review for Twice The Speed Of Dark

There is a lot of very fine writing in this work. The novel deals with difficult and important issues in a sensitive and intense way (issues such as how to deal with the outrageous unfairness of the violent death of an innocent loved one at the hands of a murderer or a terrorist). The difficulty for the central character is how to come to terms with the fact that her daughter has been killed by the very person everyone thought was there to love and protect her. One of the important questions raised and explored in the novel is whether in such circumstances there can ever be any degree of reconciliation or forgiveness.
