The cottage Adam purchases isn’t inherently evil, but it is imbued with the history of Coatehaven, the fishing village that dramatically collapsed into the ocean two hundred years ago. As Adam is drawn into the historic area he struggles separating the supernatural world he is drawn into from reality. It was hard for me to accept that Adam would buy into the ghostly images when he knew the history, but bit by bit reality slipped away.
The ending could have ended several different ways and I was surprised by the direction it took. It did tie up the other thread, which I didn’t discuss. It dealt with how Adam rationalizes his kids and the wife he was separated from. This added another dimension to the story I’ll allow the reader to muddle over. I will say it shocked me…
FYI: There were two well deserved F-bombs. **Originally written for "BigAl’s Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy.** September 16, 2020
Format/Typo Issues: No significant issues.
The longer he lives in the cottage, the further he is drawn into the past. Is he truly living in that past or is he going crazy (as his wife suspects)? He meets local fishermen at the pub, falls in love with a young woman named Charlotte, and has mysterious encounters with an older woman who seems to be his landlady. But, when his wife and children come for a visit, they cannot see the village or any of the people Adam sees.
I enjoyed this short story and was reminded of the movie "Brigadoon", with the village appearing and disappearing at odd times. The author does a good job with creating the mysterious atmosphere and I always enjoy his works. The narrator did a great job and added a lot to my enjoyment of this audiobook. I was given the chance to listen to this audiobook by the author/narrator/publisher and chose to review it.
