Subject: RE: BS: Delightful Novel: Beyond the Cascade
A reader describes "Beyond the Cascade":
"Beautifully written, binding the reader along the writer's and characters' journeys toward universal secrets about elemental forces like nature, self, thought, time, war, reality/untruth, grief, love, life, will, and transcendence.
Tantalizingly ambitious, full of layered meaning you will only catch through repeated readings, this is a page-turner -- it hooks the reader along on its journey and sweeps one away in the plays of light on the path through use of language.
The use of language is multi-dimensional, and not to be missed. A. H. Jessup has crafted a brilliantly complex allegory which connotes simplicity, turning layered rock into layered meanings that flow like water, until the reader flows along too."
