    It's an historical fiction about an irish young man and girl struggling with their immigrant lives. He was convicted by english officers and tortured. Even ..raped. at that point I cried. His fellow mate was burnt alive and the english wanted to find his daughter and sell them as a prostitute (she was only 5).. this irish guy manages to escape and to save the little girl and treats her like her own daughter. He escapes to england to hide for a while and meets an irish girl who he knew when he was a kid. The girl has changed: she's not as happy as when she was in Ireland (she left before the war), she's bullied because irish and poor and she wants to go to college because she's really smart but it's forbidden because shes irish.. so depressing. Throughout the whole book the boy says the daughter is his own, and he treats the other girl in a cold way, although he secretly loves her and protects her. She loves him but she's stubborn and shy and afraid of lots of things. At some point when she isnt accepted at college she decides to commit suicide and when he finds out he gets mad and confesses that he loves her, and everything is ok until he reveals that he cannot love anyone because of what happened in prison. She cries listening to his words and kisses him, although he refuses. They end up making love while after they cried. that was so emotional...

  • Can I set a book with only 1 scene?

    I thougt it was a good idea since I'd only have 2 characters and theyd pretty much just be talking and discussing (not in one sitting it stretches out over a couple of months) and it's really not action driven at all and I thought it would be interesting since as time goes on you see the differences in the... show more
    I thougt it was a good idea since I'd only have 2 characters and theyd pretty much just be talking and discussing (not in one sitting it stretches out over a couple of months) and it's really not action driven at all and I thought it would be interesting since as time goes on you see the differences in the characters and more important information is revealed until the end where the narrator sort of gives a monologue showing how hes changed but my friend said that it was "dumb and bland" to make it 1 setting and it only works in movies. Should i keep it in one setting?

  • Why do books, TV, and movies not reference people going to the bathroom?

    Like in no book I've read is there a part about having to go to the bathroom or even referencing that the character used the restroom. It's apart of everyday life, yet it is never referenced? (Some people might argue that it doesn't advance the plot/has nothing to do with the story, but how about... show more

(Some people might argue that it doesn't advance the plot/has nothing to do with the story, but how about drinking coffee or reading the news? That doesn't advance the plot yet it is still included. Also, I'm not talking about describing in detail someone taking a dump. All I am wanting to know is why a character doesn't ever think "Oh, I should go to the bathroom before I pick up Taylor from soccer practice". That kinda stuff :-)

    Best answer: I am a former fan.

    I was in primary school when the 2005 revival arrived. What a wonderful part of my childhood! It was so exciting, dark and varied. Slitheen ship crashing into Westmonster, Dalek in an underground base, those bat things, Dalek military with Emperor etc. I really liked the second series, as well, with the Krillitanes and Cybermen.

    My interest in it waned during the third series (2007) due to it changing to a weird and overly light-hearted atmosphere. The Doctor became overly pacifistic, as well, to the point where he was causing needless civilian casualties. I stopped watching after that.

    It has since deteriorated further, becoming very childish and SJW tripe. Don't get me started on the decision to turn The Doctor female.

  • Writing my query letter - should I also include a short piece of coursework as well as a section of the book?

    I am in the process of contacting a literary agent, with the hope of getting my book published. To demonstrate more pieces of my work, do you think I should include a link to a short piece of English coursework that I did recently? I'm a first-time author so I have no previous books to list. Thanks!

  • I want to write a children's story but have no idea what to write about. Any ideas?

    I want the story to have a lesson behind it. If you have kids could you ask them what is something they would like to read? Or plot ideas?

  • How to mend a book that has previously been wet?

    Best answer: If this was not disclosed to you when you bought it, the thing to do is return it and insist the seller pay shipping. They've sold you damaged goods that cannot be made whole, since you cannot repair the pages that were once wet.

  • Do Books Make Good Presents?

    Best answer: Books are a good, very traditional gift. (Happens that I have a "Complete Sherlock Holmes", myself. I first read it in the 1970s.)

    The risk with that particular book is that your recipient may already have it.

  • I feel the book I am writing is terrible and that I am an awful writer. Should I still write it?

    I loved the book at first, but then I remembered all the rejection letters I received from other books. Now I'm paranoid this book is just going to be reject to and that agents think I'm a bad writer. Should I continue regardless of my low self-esteem?
