Martha, a character from my novel “Conditions”

2 Comments News

Book_marketing2-lrgMartha is a petite and fragile woman, a battered wife and recovering alcoholic. Despite her own desperate situation and her shy and vulnerable nature she decides to stand by Charles and support him through the ordeal of his mother’s funeral. She switches quickly from painfully holding back and being tense to complete and utter lack of boundaries.

She is an unlikely candidate to join this sad event since she carries so much of her own baggage and emotional scars with her, but despite her lack of confidence and sense of self worth she can surprise everyone with her occasional powers of determination. 

How does she ‘deal’ with Charles’s condition, what is her take on his character, how does she cope with the hostility at the funeral and will she ever break free from her chains?

Conditions

When Charles and Tony’s mother dies the estranged brothers must struggle to pick up the pieces, particularly so given that one of them is mentally challenged and the other bitter about his place within the family. The conflict is drawn out over materialistic issues, but there are other underlying problems which go to the heart of what it means to be part of a family which, in one way or another. has cast one aside. Prejudice, misconceptions and the human condition in all forms feature in this contemporary drama revolving around a group of people who attend the subsequent funeral at the British South Coast. Meet flamboyant gardener Charles, loner Simon, selfless psychic Elaine, narcissistic body-builder Edgar, Martha and her version of unconditional love and many others as they try to deal with the event and its aftermath.

    Very interesting!

    A very weighty subject and one all too often ignored or pushed aside. You take on the hard subjects Christoph and I admire you for that.
