Coombes Wood, a Fantasy story where reality is never far away.,
This review is from: Coombe's Wood (Kindle Edition)
Izzy and her son, Connor, are the characters driving the story and the realistic development of these characters in particular makes a fine counterpoint to the fantasy elements as they appear. The spooky wood of the title may also be considered a viable character, such is its influence on the plot.
There's much to commend here. The author allows herself free rein in the outpourings of a formidable imagination. This is more than a light, airy fantasy peopled by elves. There are real issues: domestic violence, a stalking abuser, all rooted very strongly in reality. If you enjoy a melange of stark realism, Izzy and her pursuing husband, interspersed with fantasy elements, you'll love Coombe's Wood.
