WHEN THE RAINBOW GODDESS WEPT, Reading by Cecilia Brainard

In the face of terror and despair, she finds comfort in the stories her people have passed down over generations. In particular, the legends of Bongkatolan, the Woman Warrior, and the merciful rainbow goddess offer her strength and hope.

Description

Yvonne becomes determined to preserve the ancient legends and to give voice to the epic she herself is living. Under the cloud of war, it is a goal almost too to contemplate. But it will define Yvonne and her people with a strength and a clarity more powerful than any weapon. As an exploration of the collective wounding of the Filipino people and their heroic response, When the Rainbow Goddess Wept shows us the Philippine through an insider's eyes and brings to American audiences an unusual reading experience about a world that is utterly foreign and a child who is touchingly universal.

Brainard divides her time between the Philippines and Santa Monica, California, where she lives with her husband and two sons.

For a subject like the war and its implications this is far too limited, especially as the family could have been off worse. I don't need detailed descriptions of all possible atrocities but here I sometimes got the impression that Yvonne is treating the war years more like an adventure holiday — despite the war-induced problems and restrictions. Apart from that I liked the traditional stories embedded in the novel plot very much.

Macht sich als Leihgabe auf den Weg zum Lesen ohne Zeitlimit. In contrast to Torgin, I really liked this novel.

  • I find the perspective of a child interesting as children tend to see other details. I didn't have the impression war was an adventure holiday for Yvonne, either.

    • She sees and hears of some atrocities and realizes herself that there were families "far worse off". I liked the embedded traditional stories a lot. I have learned quite a lot from that book.
