There are some vague thoughts And I need to organize them Will write a review laterThe StoryDo not worry I am not giving any spoilers I will be stating that is on the back cover with few spoiler free additions A plane bound for Azores island crashes in an isolated island which is almost thousand kilometers far away from any post office The island is isolated but not uninhabited It is inhabited by one Mr Robinson the proprietor of the island and he is assisted by a small orphan boy Miguel There are three survivors from the crash who are saved by Robinson and are nurtured back to good health These are the protagonists Among the three survivors there is the heroine Mrs January Marlow a recent convert to Catholicism One woman among four men and a boyThe initial efforts at search failed to notice the island They are forced to wait for three months when the annual pomegranate boat arrives to the island to carry the stock produced and also to bring in the necessary supply for the occupant The stay looks idyllic But wherever two or three are gathered there are bound to be tensions and misunderstandings This novel is about such a human adventure A bonus point The second half of the novel reads like a murder mystery It keeps you fully chargedCatholic FaithBut what interested me most in the novel is the Catholic faith and discussions on the Marian devotionLet me elaborateRobinson is a Catholic but not a conventional Catholic He aspired to become a priest once But for the over emphasis on the Marian devotion in the Catholic Church he could not accept it He comes out and writes a book titled The Dangers of Marian Doctrine This is the view of Robinson Mariology was identified with Earth mythology both were identified with superstition and superstition was evilElsewhere another character a Catholic says the similar view He says These people make fuss of the Blessed Virgin than of Jesus Christ That s dangerous This character is the one of the brothers in law of our lady protagonist Mrs January Marlow He is a born English Catholic and he cannot stand anything of the excess associated with Marian devotion He hates what Catholics do in Italy France Spain and South America He says yet in another place pointedly making his observations about Marian devotion in those countries thus Awful old crones hobbling along after the statues clinking their rosaries mumbling their Hail Marys as if their lives depended on it And the sickening thing young people people in their prime caught up in the mob hysteria That sort of thing corrupts the FaithOur heroine is a recent convert and she likes to pray rosary In fact it is the only object that she had in her coat pocket as she was projected from the plane But Robinson does not want her to pray it and so takes away the object from her coat pocketLet me now come to one other character Tom Wells one of the survivors He is a dealer in lucky charms associated with the Druid religion He believes in few lockets bringing luck and desired results He has many number of such wares in his suitcase which is salvages from the wrecked plane Miguel who is unschooled in any religion takes to both objects lucky charms and rosary in the same way He is fascinated by both That provides interesting situation to produce two observations1 what is religion other than what one teaches the other2 Is there a difference between a magic charm and a rosaryI am sure that Muriel Spark always grappled with the uestion of her new found faith Catholicism She was not a person who blindly embraced a practice She reasoned it out These are her own struggles to understand Catholic faith This novel came out in 1954 The uestions pressed on in her mind and later she gives an answer in her other book that came out in 1988 The book in uestion is A Far Cry from Kensington There she writes my religion in fact went beyond those Hail Marys which had become merely a superstition to me By which she meant in that novel that a mere uttering of certain words at a certain time would not be called a religion She wanted to get to the heart of religion Elsewhere in one of her interviews she had replied thus about her reason to conversion to Catholicism The simple explanation is that I felt the Roman Catholic faith corresponded to what I had always known and believed the difficult explanation would involve the step by step building up of a convictionThe travel from Robinson to A Far Cry from Kensington was in fact a step by step building up of her faith She was not a conventional Catholic But she was a true Catholic trying to understand her faith fullyFinal WordJust because I had discussed elaborately about Catholic Faith in the novel do not take it to be a Catholic novel through and through It is a great

I have one of the first reviews of the book from the Times Literary Supplement June 27 1958 Whoever reviewed it was hot and cold towards it Robinson is a fine written suggestive and irritating bookMiss Spark has real talent and a vivid imagination though it is a trifle misty at the edges but so far she appears to be using these gifts to tease and to mystify rather than to enlighten and explore so that what in fact lingers in the mind is not some satisfying aesthetic pattern or overall impression but individual felicities here and there
