Fabulous New Edition  Dec 3, 2003
This new Akashic edition adds a whole new layer to this wonderful novel. The introduction alludes to the making of the Merchant-Ivory film, and the author's experiences on the set. Also, she delves into the differences between memoir and fiction writing, and why this novel so clearly is a novel and not a memoir. The new chapter, "Mother's Day," which stands alone as a short story -- as all of these chapter do and were surely meant to -- describes the narrator Channe's troubled and deeply ambivalent relationship with her mother. I always felt the mother was a little absent from this novel. Now she's not! Bravo to Akashic for reprinting this American classic.
A compelling story of a childhood in France  Nov 12, 2001
A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries is based on the author's journeys through childhood and her early adult life. It is a compelling story of life, love and loneliness. The novel is basically about the relationship the main character Charlotte-Anne (also known as Channe) had with her father and how it changed throughout her childhood and maturity. Channe is very close to her father throughout her early childhood. As she becomes a teenager they begin to drift apart. But after an unfortunate turn of events the bond is tightened between them.
From the first chapter the reader is put inside the mind of five-year-old child to see the world through her eyes and to experience things the way she experienced them. The reader gets pulled into the book from the very beginning through the author's use of vivid description and specific details when Charlotte-Anne's parents adopt a five-year-old son. Charlotte-Anne has to learn to cope with not being the only child. Channe has a very temperamental personality; one moment she loves him the next she can't stop being mad at him. The book also follows her relationship with her brother and how they learn to love and respect each other no matter how impossible it seems. From her brother's adoption to their move from France to America Charlotte-Anne tries her best to love life and live it the best she knows how.
I really enjoyed reading this book because it is written from the perspective of a child and the book illustrates beautifully the confusion that children go through.
A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries  Nov 2, 2001
In this autobiographical novel, Kaylie Jones opens the doors for her readers to look into her life, and focus on her life altering events. The book skips through time without explanation from one major life event to another. This may cause a bit of confusion, but it's easy to get back on track. But the leaps through time leave the reader somewhat bewildered as to what built up to the experiences and what caused the varying emotions.

As Channe, the main character, travels down the bumpy roads of this journey called life, the reader is taught that everyone has issues, however different they may be from their own, there is usually a level to relate on. Albeit the emotions expressed are vivid and everyone can relate to feelings of jealousy, shame, fear, anxiety, bliss and grief, most readers crave more than just a connection to the characters, they desire a type of inspiration.

The greatest books always leave the readers thinking. A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries is a quick read that doesn't provoke thoughts outside the pages. This book, for the most part, is pretty lightweight and a nice escape from ordinary life (as are most books!). Yet, if it is an inspirational, mind provoking autobiography you're looking for-this is not the book for you!

A Solder Daughter Never Cries Review By Mimi  Oct 24, 2001
The book "A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries" is about a young girl, Channe, living in France and how she must endure the many life altering events that occur making a significant impact on her life. Channe as a young child is very resentful and curious of the world around her. As Channe matures her actions become seemingly irrational and reflect on the outcome of her adulthood.
I found that after reading this book it gave me a different perspective on many things and how one should handle themselves. It lead me to ask questions and at some points baffled me to read what Channe had done before the age of sixteen. I was also quit intrigued with how the parents handled Channe's behavior in such a stand offish and unique manner.
I really enjoyed the ascription of honesty expressed in the book in how a girl of Channe's stature would express and define herself. I thought that this book was a very good read and kept me interested at all times. I also felt that the book was very well written making it easy to absorb.
Skilllful writing ,pointless immoral narrative  Oct 20, 1999
Kaylie Jones displays a skill in writing and in describing scenes, situations, and characters somewhat in the style of her father.The descriptions of her home and her parents, as well as the time spent in Paris and America and the circumstances surrounding her brother's adoption and their relationships are,I know,somewhat autobiographical, but I find the general subject matter objectionable and of little merit. It is not a book I would recommend to a friend, but I would be interested in observing the future development of the author's literary talent.
