Theme is an integral part of a novel. Not to take you back to your school days (unless you wish to be reminded of them), but theme is basically the meaning behind a story, the message the author wants you to take from her novel. I have my own opinion about how blatant a theme should be (I hate books that hit me over the head with theme), but I will tell you that my books do have themes. In AS YOU WISH, my latest release, one of the themes is about looking beneath the surface.
But two characters in particular prove they have more to them than their appearance might let one think. Tommy and Joy are Reggie’s bakers and friends. Many people might dismiss Tommy and Joy as incapable or disabled. See, Tommy has Down syndrome, and Joy is simply Joy. But Reggie sees beyond what they can’t do and lets them shine. Appearances.
