An action-packed genre novel, this is not; but it is a quality work and a worthy read. 4 1/2 stars.
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!
I was given a copy in return for an honest review.
A collection of three fairly short character driven stories, supernatural and eerie, that centre around three women, a particular place and a pub named The Boathouse.
Ella: ‘It was a dream that woke me. The dream. The one I’ve had so often. Only this time there was an ending…oh, definitely there was an ending.’
Can dreams foretell the future and if so, is it possible to change the course of events.
Sally: ‘Murder. I shudder, feeling nauseous. That word…murder. It’s so menacing, so malicious. It’s so final.’
Sally is running from her dark past but how far will she go to keep it hidden.
Rona: ‘As the sun sets, Rona sways between the tables, lighting candles. Shadows hover on the walls, looming over the room – a slight menace, a slight disquiet prevails. In the furthest corner, away from the bar and the entrance, a candle refuses to be lit.’
Rona has a gift, a gift she will have to master.. or pay the ultimate price.
These women are inextricably linked, all running away from events in their lives and ending up in the same place. Each story is detailed wonderfully and evocatively written, painting vivid pictures, chilling and macabre and all with unexpected endings. These are not feel good tales but compelling nonetheless. What brings each woman to this place and why? Is the Boathouse the catalyst? Each tale is unique yet part of the whole and all are woven together very cleverly in the final story.
