📒The Innocents ✍ Christopher Frayling
📝The Innocents Book Synopsis : Jack Clayton's gothic masterpiece The Innocents, though not a commercial success on its release in 1961, has been hailed as one of the greatest psychological thrillers of all time. Dividing reviewers with its ambiguous depiction of ghosts, the film ignited a debate about the aesthetics of horror which still rages today. In this stimulating introduction to The Innocents, Sir Christopher Frayling traces the film from its genesis in the original novel The Turn of The Screw by Henry James, via contemporary critical contexts and William Archibald's 1950 stage adaptation of the same name, to the screenplay by William Archibald, Truman Capote and John Mortimer. Drawing on unpublished material from Jack Clayton's archive – including Capote's handwritten drafts for the film – and interviews with Deborah Kerr, Freddie Francis, and John Mortimer, Frayling explores how this classic ghost story came to life on screen. This special edition features original cover artwork by Matthew Young.

📒Salt Lick Vol Ii ✍ Dr. Robert A. Brock
📝Salt Lick Vol Ii Book Synopsis : SALT LICK, Vol. II, The Innocents, by Dr. Robert A. (Sunny) Brock, the conclusion of Ali ORileys celebration of life is glutted with maturing parent-child, emotional relationships, and sibling bonding. The same variety of personalities are present which filled the pages of Volume One, however, they are in the responsible summer of life. The comedy, romance and pathos of life reach new plateaus as the families blunder through the early child-rearing years with purpose and hope. As a clan-unit they share their joys and surprises, exploring male-female differences in perspective, finding new levels of patience with each others shortcomings. Again, the Christian message of redemption is folded into real life situations amidst friction and agitation. All the relationships jell, teaching tolerance and patience among the diverse antagonistic personalities. THOMAS and ALI set up housekeeping near a valley lake. The other clan-couples soon follow, building homes around the lake, creating a protective, pastoral paradise and establishing their own town of Cousins, Georgia, between Savannah and Macon. Thomas and Alis cabin is nestled beside the main wagon trail. A mysterious traveler and his two children, running from the east-coast Scarlet fever epidemic, are stranded. The stranger departs in the night, leaving his ill children in Thomas and Alis care. Before the young girl dies, Ali catches her contagious disease. Ali looses her strength and glory due to the ravages of Scarlet fever. The small abandoned boy is given to ELIJAH to rear. One of the many animal episodes occur in the cabin, teaching priority management. During early morning hours, a squabbling wood duck and squirrel fall into the fireplace. The comic bedlam of the chase brings about an accidental fire. This incident sets the stage for empathetic-comedy, and romantic interlude of emotional joy and stress release, which the reader will vicariously share and fall in love with the couple. Alis first born son, SUNNY (Big Foot), enters the story and steals the show to the end of the book. Sunnys two year old, baby-talk is contrasted by his uninformed thought life, which adds classical, innocent joy from his birth to the conclusion. Sunny is born with a club foot. Uncle Elijah builds a twisting box for therapeutic straightening of the foot. The entire clan shares Alis agony, watching helpless as her baby suffers. Elijahs wife is barren from too much cattle driving and horse riding as a child, therefore, he brings several orphans into the clan. Having been raised in a household of twenty-one children, he cannot function well without sibling rivalry and bonding. On a trip to Savannah, promoting his Elijah treasure chest-coffins he obtains custody of a criminal's children, thus enters GEORGE, into the clan family-fabric. George becomes one of Sunnys protector-benefactors. Elijahs wife, HOWDY, develops a jealous battle between herself and sister-in-law. The family squabble results in ROWDY becoming a paraplegiate. Rowdys invalid state affords opportunity to teach forgiveness, patience and tenacity. Thomas takes Ali and Sunny shopping in Savannah. The gala mood ends in tragedy when Sunny gets lost from Daddy at the Savannah Zoo. The helpless anxiety of losing a child pervades the episode. Unknown to the parents, a vagrant child tries caring for Sunny, resulting in much pathetic comedy. The new caretaker, GOOBER, also loses Sunny on one of their many rollicking jaunts. However, Goober in his persistence, rescues Sunny, and after many near death situations, returns him to his mother, who thinks a guardian angel has returned her baby. Then, Ali loses and rescues Sunny. Before leaving Savannah, the orphan, Goober, is convince
📒The Innocents ✍ Nette Hilton
📝The Innocents Book Synopsis : This is a novel about adopting convenient truths. On one level it is the story of a child, Missie Missinger, whose life experience is not sufficient to allow her to explain the desperate truth of her situation. Her attempts to rationalise her feelings lead her into real danger. It is also a portrait of the willingness of young children to try to accept situations that they know are wrong, and attempt to live with them. On another level it is the story of Olexander Shevchenko, a young man who has left his own home to begin a new life in a small town in Australia. His life has been a war zone and conflicts of forced loyalties. In spite of this he is unprepared for the small-mindedness of people in his new country that has been shielded from many of the harsher truths of foreign countries. Like Missie, he is innocent - she, because she is a child and has only the knowledge of a child; he, because his innocence was not able to flourish in the corruption of survival as a war-child and refugee and now, in this new place, it begins to surface again. This is a narrative set in the 1950s with truths that are still convenient today.
📒The Camp Of The Innocents ✍ Yasen Kalaidjieff
📝The Camp of the Innocents Book Synopsis : The greater part of the book is based on a true story and describes the experiences of a boy in a summer camp, where he learns many of the lessons of life in the difficult way. In a broader aspect, it is about man, who possesses the quality of a leader, but the system turns him into a loser. The action only seemingly develops in a smaller country of the Balkans, Europe, during its early post-communist period. Human relations viewed are independent of place and time and of the age of the characters, as it is no secret that children's world is a reflection of a purer type of the world of adults. This is a book about the collision between good and evil, about truth and lie, about dignity and humiliation, about friendship and betrayal... But besides drama, there is also humour in it; besides violence, there is nobility and also philosophical and psychological thinking, entwined in the dynamic action.

Even in a tough Mississippi county like Tibbehah, it shatters the community, and it is up to Sheriff Quinn Colson, back on the job after a year away, and his deputy Lillie Virgil, to investigate what happened, and why. Before long, however, accusations start to fly; national media and federal authorities descend; and what seemed like a senseless act of violence begins to appear like something even more disturbing - with more victims waiting in the shadows.
