I found the book very insightful. Ms Jones has inherited her father's gift for storytelling and it was a view into the private life of her family told with love and nostalgia.

It must be hard to be a child of James Jones, a wonderful writer, but her daddy would have been immensely proud of this effort. The movie is terrific, too, but this is what generated that.

I was delighted to read this text. I was so enjoined with the characters that I felt they were real. The writing was excellent, the story very well told. A must read for new writers who are looking to write fiction in a memoir style! Ms. Jones is an honest storyteller with a unique voice.

In anticipation of Kaylie Jones's soon to be released memoir, LIES MY MOTHER NEVER TOLD ME, I revisited my copy of A SOLDIER'S DAUGHTER NEVER CRIES, a novel based loosely on Jones's early life in Paris. My 2003 reprint of the 1990 novel includes an introduction by the author, written after having visited the set of the Merchant Ivory film of A SOLDIER'S DAUGHTER. With graceful prose, Jones tells the story of Channe Willis, who lives in Paris with her mother and father (a renowned writer), and her newly adopted brother. Forced to share her father for the first time, Channe's story is at once heart-wrenching and heart-warming. Jones is a master of characterization (Yes, I'm a fan. SPEAK NOW was my first Jones novel). Seemingly with ease (though that can't possibly be true), Jones creates such multi-layered characters that I found myself chastising them one minute and cheering them the next. A SOLDIER'S DAUGHTER is a wonderful book! Knowing that this novel is based largely on Kaylie Jone's experiences as the daughter of writer James Jones (FROM HERE TO ETERNITY), it will be interesting to compare the fictional A SOLDIER'S DAUGHTER with her new memoir, LIES MY MOTHER NEVER TOLD ME.

Upon hearing that this book was to become a Merchant-Ivory production, I rushed to the library to get on the waiting list to read it. Much to my surprise, four copies sat on the shelf waiting, and after reading the book, I know why. It's an interesting coming-of-age novel set in the charm of Paris, but not the stunning tour-de-force I was expecting. Channe Willis's frequently odd family is lovingly described, and her relationship with her father is enviable---however, I feel I must be missing something that caught the eye of the Merchant-Ivory team. This apparently semiautobiographical novel is nowhere near as compelling as previous M-I productions; perhaps this will be the rare film that is better than the book!

Few authors are able to fully evoke the complex world of a child with its intense joys, sorrows, jealousy and loneliness. Harper Lee comes to mind and, with this beautifully written novel, so does Kaylie Jones. We accompany the narrator, Channe Willis, through the arrival of her adopted brother, clutching his suitcase in his too-small jacket; her weekly bouts of insomnia, her stubborn encounters with school directors and, in the end, the death of her beloved father. Among the richly drawn characters, Channe's first friend, Francis Fortescue and his eccentric mother, stand out. Francis owns three string puppets, two women and a man. One of the ladies was blond, wears a pink gown with gold trim, and the other is in dark purple with silver trim and has black hair. In a conversation that is true to the fantasy play of children as well as revealing, Francis tells Channe that "Esperanza was the good one, the one in pink, and Serpentina was the evil adulteress, murderess, and home-wrecker. The little man was Don Francesco. He's kind, fragile and believes anything they tell him. He always gets stuck in the middle and someone gets killed." A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries is a quietly powerful book that wonderfully recreates the unique world of children and young adults.

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 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.
