“The Boathouse collects misfits. Strange solitary creatures that yearn for contact with the outside world, but not too much. They sit, glass in hand, either staring at the table in front of them, or at some distant point on the horizon.”
…… So says the narrator of Our Beautiful Child. And he’s been round long enough to know.
People end up in this town almost by accident. Ella is running away from her nightmares, Sally is running away from the memories of previous boyfriends and Rona is running away from university. Each of them seek sanctuary in the 18th century pub, The Boathouse; but in fact that’s where their troubles begin.
Ella finds love, a moment to late; Rona discovers a beautiful ability which needs refining before she gets hurt; and Sally meets the captivating Murray, who threatens to ruin everything.
Three women. Three Stories. One Pub.
Annalisa has managed to write a book centered around one place The Boathouse. Each story is unique interesting and also slight creepy. I don’t normally read books that are in the horror genre but this made me thirsty for more, I really enjoyed the second book and the third just made me want to read more. The cover adds a certain mystery to the book as I could’nt work out what the book was about until I read the book. Very powerful story. Will be looking forward to Annalisa’s next book and hope it is
as good as this one.
