Annalisa Crawford is, put simply, BRILLIANT! I finished the whole book in the matter of an hour. Her prose, the way she describes situations, characters, and what they feel is absolutely uncanny!
Our Beautiful Child is a collection of three stories centred around three women, who each find (I’m going to call it something) in an 18th century pub called the Boathouse!
I wouldn’t know how to describe this book for the life of me! Each story had me leaning back for a minute, just recollecting, before I felt the compulsive need to start the next! The second was by far my favourite- because that ending was one I did not see coming!
I would just give it my strongest recommendation- even if you don’t usually do the horror genre- this will make you want more!
*Thank You to the publishers, Battered Suitcase Press and the author for giving me this opportunity.**
First is about Ella and the nightmares she had as a young girl. You would think it was a monster dream...but was it? Then what's with the aliens when she gets into teen years? There must be something hidden within these dreams, but just what could this all mean exactly? Later in her life Will comes along and her dreams continue to go on. The last few words of this story was a surprise and yet it was just perfect.
So lets talk about Sally and her boyfriends. Well it starts strong and she is with Murray and well they should have better timing, because now Sally has to scramble to look good and get to work. Sally works at a fast food place and thats about it. She dropped out of school and made some wrong turns in the road, but right now she is working and hopes to move closer to the water some day. Then there is Steve. Then there was Andrew who she was supposed to marry. Well Sally doesn't have the greatest luck in the world when guys are concerned. They all tend to die and Sally moves on. Murray was mentioned the most and she could have had a life with him and be happy together, but I guess things never go perfectly for Sally. Now she grabs her bag and goes on in her life.
Now for Rona. Rona also left school and is off doing her thing. New job and place and has an ability. Dreams and ghosts is what Rona deals with. Its nothing new really, she would be moving furniture and turning on lights when she was a kid. Yup, totally normal things going on around here. Souls and stories will come to her and its actually written really well and I couldn't get enough of Rona's story.
Three different stories and yet they all relate to the pub. Each story is strong and the details are done wonderfully. I just kept turning the page and wish the stories were longer than they were. I loved each one and will be looking to read more of Annalisa's books!
I give this book 5 stars!
