Morgan To stay with Orren she will choose either to fight her way to independence or accept the rigors of commitmentBoth a drama of age old conflicts and a portrait of modern life C E Morgan's debut novel is simply astonishing a book about life force the precious will to live and all the things that can suck it right out of a person Susan Salter Reynolds Los Angeles Times. IT might seem strange to recommend a novel about a drought set in the US south while we endure our northern floodBut a conflagration is a conflagration and Kentuckian CE Morgan s All the Living is a damn fine distractionThis lean little novel Morgan s first tells the story of Aloma and Orren a young couple who attempt to run the family farm after Orren s mother and brother die in a tragic accident Two things get in their way the drought that has settled over the region and the fact Aloma and Orren s relationship isn t sanctified by marriageWhile we don t know precisely when the novel is set in the Kentucky small town time and place they inhabit it matters that Aloma and Orren aren t marriedAnd if that isn t enough worry over losing the crop and by extension the farm is turning the grief stricken Orren inside outAloma from whose point of view the novel is told agreed to join Orren at the farm and act as farm wife because she loves him but also because she doesn t know what else to doWhat she doesn t understand is running a farm never having even lived in a house beforeAnother thorn is that Aloma discovered at school that she was a gifted pianist And the piano at the house that Orren promised was in working condition is ruined the sound was spoiled like a meatWhile she can learn to cook and clean to feed the chickens and hope for rain Aloma can t unlearn her ambition and it only take a month without playing the piano before she gets a job playing hymns at a local churchThis is where Aloma meets Bell Johnson a farmer whose version of noblesse oblige means that he like his father half ruins his own farm so he can also preach at the churchBell a bachelor with a suspicious mother and worse a ruined piano of his own at home is drawn to Aloma or rather to Aloma at the pianoAloma likes that Bell can talk circles around what is bothering him and that he seems to need her unlike the flinty distant Orren But she is trapped playing house with Orren and it is uestionable whether marriage to Bell would satisfy her ambition any than marriage to Orren wouldBut no matter your notions of duty versus ambition or marriage versus living in sin it is hard to ignore the sexy muscular writing on offer here Also of note is Morgan s skill in depicting the desperate but aimless energy of early adulthood particularly from a female perspectiveAlthough the book does nod towards Marilynne Robinson s Pulitzer winning Gilead 2004 in some ways All the Living feels like a reverse angle telling of that story Morgan is interested in exploring dissonance than harmonyAnd while Morgan s master s in theology from Harvard Divinity School shows in her rendition of entire sermons Bell s is a small practical theology heartfelt and palatable even to those who prefer their fiction secularfrom my review which appeared in the Winnipeg Free Press April 5 2009
