How did you feel when Jonah took the blame for the fire and spared Jason from going to prison?
Book Club is the place to come and share your thoughts and questions on the story featured during the course of the month.
A book will remain in the space for a month; that feels like it should be long enough; but in all things, you tell me ...
I'll always kick off the month and the book with some background for the story and then I'll be on tap to answer any questions; sometimes I'll pose a question too.
So, "Weaver" which is how I refer to the story ...
This cover is the first cover for the first part of the story which is called 'The weaver and the loom' and there was only ever going to be one part when I started out but when Elam ran off to Deuxfleurs and invited Jonah and Jason to go to the city, I felt there was probably more story to tell.
The first part of the story was written in January 2013 and published in February 2013; in terms of the writing, it came immediately after 'The mouse that felled the oak'.
The Weaver and the Loom – The Warp
“Change comes not when we expect it, rarely is it a welcome guest … a darkness descends but there is light too … he is young and impetuous, he will act out of love but you will pay the price … something will be born and something will die … that is what I can see.” Such were the words of the fortune teller to Jonah. Jonah is the village weaver and his lover is Jason, the village boatwright. Their love for one another runs deep but it is kept hidden from the village. A young man’s arrival to the village brings an unexpected change and the fortune teller's words begin to ring resoundingly with truth.
I sincerely hope that you enjoy the story and please contribute to the discussion.
