Brizecombe Hall: A Short and Sweet Jane Eyre Inspired Read

Many thanks to Bronte Babe Blog for their review of ‘Brizecombe Hall’!

Brontë Babe Blog

As regular readers of Brontë Babe Blog will know, I am obsessed with all things Brontë. Unfortunately, due to certain events that have taken place in my life recently, I haven’t really had the heart to get stuck into much reading, and not a lot of motivation to blog. I’m doing rather a lot of flitting from book to book, and not really settling down to anything. However, I’m currently making my way through a Jane Eyre inspired novel by Tracy Neiss called Mr. R: A Rock & Roll Romance which has been entertaining me on my morning train journeys to work. I hope to have this finished and reviewed soon. Last week I attempted to write a review of The World Within: A Novel of Emily Brontë by Jane Eagland which I finished quite some time ago, but there were too many things on my mind to allow me…

My Review of ‘Sal’ by Mick Kitson

Since it’s World Book Day, I thought it would be good for the soul to write a review of a book I recently read and thoroughly enjoyed.  Sal, by Mick Kitson, is newly-published on Amazon.

It’s difficult to broach the main theme of this book without giving too much away. Suffice to say that Sal commits the most serious of crimes and yet has the reader’s full sympathy. The book explores the extents to which Sal goes in the name of sisterly love but the most poignant aspect of the narrative is her endless support of her errant mother. A strong tension is created in that Sal’s stark recounting of events leaves the reader feeling far less sympathetic towards Maw.

I loved this book. It wasn’t for the fine detailing of Sal and Peppa’s time in the wilderness but for the compelling nature of the underlying story that Sal is telling throughout. The classic adventure stories that are referenced in the book are, superficially, the model for what this story itself is, but, at a deeper level, Sal leaves us questioning the society in which we live today.
