4.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Thriller, 14 Jan. 2011
This review is from: The Pull of The Moon (Paperback)
Diane Janes usually writes non-fiction, this is her first published work of fiction, and a very good first novel too. Janes is quite obviously an experienced author, the book is well-written and although quite slow at the start, soon packs up the pace, she weaves a great story and I found myself reading faster and faster towards the end.
The story is told in flash-backs by Kate, a middle-aged single retired teacher. Kate has received a letter out of the blue from the mother of a boy spent the summer of 1972 with. She recounts the story of that summer which was spent staying in an isolated country house. Initially there were just the three of them; Kate, her boyfriend Danny and his university friend Simon. Then Trudie turns up - mysterious, young, spiritual, she soons changes the whole atmosphere of the house.
There is a certain feeling of dread, impending doom, the thought that something tragic is about to happen. The descriptions of the long, hot summer days, the old dusty house and the assorted and quite different characters work so well.
I enjoyed every page of this thriller, slow-paced but well told and it makes you wonder just how well do you know anyone?
