Much about this novel could lead some current readers to brush it aside maybe even with a sneer overheated teenage romanticism a struggle with a literalistic but now somewhat passee notion of what Protestant devotion should be freuent Biblical references and uotations a somewhat old fashioned use of letters and diary entries to present several points of view etc But I confess this novel enthralled me precisely because I have seen in my own religious tradition so many of the same tendencies portrayed here particularly the tendency to construct a relationship in such a religious romantic way that only disappointment and frustration can follow The narrator is a young man Jerome who spends much of his youth with his female cousin Alissa reading poetry side by side in a lovely family garden ie Eden these are children of a hyper educated Protestant bourgeoisie Alissa for Jerome is obsessively enticing and entiringly maddening the latter for me as well She is determined not to fall into the sensuality of her creole mother which so pained her father and also to sacrifice her own life in some Christ like way for the happiness of her rather mediocre sister But let me say without raising the necessity of a spoiler alert that one must withhold judging her too harshly as I had done before reading the final bundle of diary entries which conclude the novel These add a layer of depth or at maybe confusion to Alissa s fascinating personality
