#RBRT Review Team

Karen has been reading Sandlands by Rosy Thornton

30134079

My Opinion

This book introduces you to the Sandlands – the landscape of the Suffolk coast. 16 charming – and linked – short stories invite you to Blaxhall and its surrounding area.

With Sandlands, Rosy Thornton has created a charming collection of short stories with a good measure of folklore. It is a very enjoyable and varied read, drawing you in as you learn more about coastal Suffolk and its inhabitants. Rosy Thornton paints a clear picture of the characters and landscape while the story evolves. The characters are of sufficient depth, believable with their flaws and virtues; the author’s care for each of them shows. As for the locations, I had a clear vision of the landscape – without having been there myself. The stories are very nicely woven and have a wonderful flow. This calm way of story telling exquisitely matches the stories.

This is a book for you if you like folklore, linked short stories, believable characters, and enjoy excellent writing.

Recommended!

  1. Hi Rosie and Karen – thanks for the review … it sounds a charming book and a wonderful present for someone with an interest in wildlife, nature and the sea – in particular the Suffolk coast. If as you say you can ‘see’ the coastline through Thornton’s words it sounds like a great read … cheers Hilary
