Free read ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF î Margaret Forster Margaret Forster î 8 Read & Download Summary The Unknown Bridesmaid 108 When Julia was eight she was asked to be a bridesmaid at her beautiful cousin Iris’s wedding Her mother saw this as a chore – expensive inconvenient – but Julia was thrilled When the time came even the fact that her bridesmaid’s dress didn’t fit and was plain cream rather than the pink she’d hoped for couldn’t ruin the day But after this things. There had always been in her this meanness which every now and again got out of control Ignore the sweet looking hints of the cover The Unknown Bridesmaid by Margaret Forster is the story of Julia a strangely disaffected child who becomes a successful child psychologist It s Julia s job to explore the hidden corners of culpability in her patients anti social self destructive and sometimes deviant behaviour and yet this is the very thing that Julia sidesteps so neatly in her own past and present The Unknown Bridesmaid the twenty sixth novel from the author is subtle and intelligent but far than that this is a dark tale of self deception and motivation in which the murky impulses of the main character lurk just beneath the surface of her actionsJulia is just eight years old when she s invited back to Manchester to be a bridesmaid for her cousin Iris Julia s mother is surprised by the invitation as she and her sister Maureen aren t close Even Julia recognizes that her mother and her aunt were engaged in some sort of complicated battle and there s the sense that Maureen s life took a turn for the better while Julia s mother s did not We re given an impression of Julia s mother and it isn t pleasant Julia s mother did not immediately accept the invitation for Julia to be a bridesmaid she waited three days and then she rang her sister up saying she doubted whether Julia could accept because of the expense involved There would be the dress the shoes the flowers and she had no money to spare for any of those things She reminded her sister that she was a widow on a small a very small pension Her sister was furious but she tried to keep the anger at Julia s mother boasting of her poverty which is how she regarded it out of her voice She reminded herself that her sister had had a hard time and was indeed uite poor whereas she herself was comparatively well off and ought to be magnanimous She said her sister was not to worry about the expense She said that of course she would pay for Julia s outfit and everything that went with it She had always intended to and should have made this clear If Julia s measurements were sent a dress would be made and shoes boughtJulia as a bridesmaid is not the main gist of the story but it is a pivotal event in which we see Julia for the first time She s an odd child If we want to be kind we d call her uiet and if we dislike Julia we d call her sneaky It s at Iris s wedding that we first grasp the idea that Julia has a certain emotional disconnect from the people around her Iris is a wonderful young woman warm kind loving and much loved and joyful yet Julia much like her own dreary joyless mother holds back and sees how everyone was in thrall to her cousin The wedding is just the first event in a chain of tragedy that binds Julia to her relatives in Manchester Financial circumstances and a dark secret involving Julia s father bring Julia and her mother back to Manchester to live and so the lives of the two sets of relatives twine together initially through the wedding and then through death A horrible incident occurs involving Julia and she may or may not be responsible She was the one who had always as a child wanted to ask uestions but had been trained not to She liked being asked them too or thought she did until the uestions became tricky and she began to worry about what her answers were revealing to herself as much as to the uestionerJulia shoves aside her involvement and the hint of guilt and plunges ahead into a childhood and adolescence full of emotionally disconnected acts of casual cruelty towards the other people in her life As she grows into her teens the acts becomes increasingly serious and focusedThe Unknown Bridesmaid maintains a uietly restrained narrative tone while exploring how a close knit group of people deal with a young girl who s emotionally disturbed As the narrative goes back and forth in time between the past and the present there s a fine film over all these events which covers obscures Julia s culpability and intentions Julia s childhood of increasingly abhorrent acts is spliced with her present as she counsels children with various emotional and behavioral problems As a psychologist Julia recognizes that it was tempting to confuse a child s evasion of the truth with a calculated piece of lying She s good at uncovering the motivations behind various children s destructive actions and while this talent may spring from her own emotionally difficult past the clarity Julia shows with her patients stops there Her insight is towards others not herselfThe Unknown Bridesmaid primarily a character study is a stunning novel and perhaps part of my admiration for the book comes in no small part to the fact that it plays into one of my pet theories those of us who give the most to strangers give nothing to our families and those we are supposed to love It s a version of Mrs Jellyby s telescopic philanthropy Structured differently let s say chronologically the plot would not contain as much mystery but the plot goes back and forth with the past and the present so we see Julia as a damaged child and later as a well functioning adult But as Julia s present unfolds we begin to uestion just how well functioning she really is As for Julia s past how should we judge the intentions of children when they don t understand their own impulses Julia very much remains an enigma to herself and her relatives especially Elsa a girl who once adored Julia and yet found herself the target of Julia s malicious spite Julia also remains a mystery to the reader partly due to the novel s clever structure and brilliant characterizations but also due to the novel s wonderful ending which while deliberately anticlimactic brings only deeper uestions involving the elusiveness of the truth and multiple versions of events
