‘Hope’s Well’ tells the tale of Verity Buckthorne and her fascination with a mysterious well near her home.
The reader develops quite an insight into the working of Verity’s mind by reading her diary entries, which makes the story interesting on a psychological level as well as a fictional one.
The tale is crafted cleverly, with a slow build toward the climax and suggestions of other mysteries along the way. It has a lovely reminiscent sense of times gone by and old-fashioned charm, achieved by the author’s development of both characters and setting.
‘Hope’s Well’ is a short but substantial read that will please lovers of mystery and speculative fiction.
Book Squirrel has awarded Hope’s Well a Golden Acorn.
