Book Review: A Walk in The Woods by Esther Chilton #Book #Review

Goodreads Synopsis:

An autumnal stroll through the woods, colourful leaves crunching underfoot, the air fresh on the face, laughter and lightness portraying a happy mother and daughter scene. But something isn’t right…

A young boy who thought he knew his parents finds out that he doesn’t know them at all.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to die and then to look down upon yourself?

These are just a few of the scenes and scenarios found in A Walk In The Woods and other short stories. There are stories to make you smile, tales to bring a tear and stories to shock as well as delight.

Following the success of The Siege and other award winning stories, penned under the name Esther Newton, Freelance writer, copyeditor and Writers Bureau tutor, Esther Chilton brings you her second short story collection. You’ll find plenty of prize-winning stories throughout, as well as some new tales to enjoy.

My review

An excellent collection of short stories from Esther Chilton and a beautiful cover created by her talented daughter Charlotte too.

My thoughts – all the stories have much to offer but these are my highlights:

Ranging from sad and poignant pieces: Walk in The Woods, Jake, and The Letter to humorous tales of strangeness in the Book Lovers that will appeal to bookish souls.

Amusing endings in The Secret Diary of Marvin Martin aged 14 and a half, and a great twist in The Lover plus heart-warming stories about a new baby’s arrival in The Brat.

The Godfather features a truly amazing cat, which is always appealing to me!

William is a touching war time story and Operation Flora is a Christmas tale with a difference.

Home sets the scene in a care home with regrets and ghostly tales delight in Gus.

A confident variety of stories which kept me entertained throughout.

My rating:

5 stars
