Description

I want to start it all over again, like I’ve never been to Seabrook and like I’ve never met the people yet.

Desperate for sleep, Amy draws a bath and begins her relaxation process only to be startled awake by a strange man in her bathroom, who she would later come to know as Ryan Porter. This story deals with grief and depression but the touch of magical realism takes it to another level with the use of an interesting dramatic device. The small coastal community of Seabrook was well described – I could picture it (though undoubtably with a British bias! There’s a palpable sense of grief that is endured by Amy and the writing by the author is so beautiful that the town of Seabrook becomes a visual experience. Nobody needs to read beyond this sentence, as all they will find below is some very strange mental cat herding.

Thank you to the publisher for allowing me to listen to the audiobook of The Lighthouse by Christopher Parker in exchange for an honest review. Ryan is a character whom, if he was pulled out of the story into the real world, would be a joy and a pleasure to have in one’s life. I just finished listening to the audiobook and my emotions are all mixed up between feeling happy and sad. With Kevin heading down to the bar and Amy attempting to get some much needed sleep that she has been struggling to get for the last month. I’ll admit at the beginning, I was having doubts about the book because I felt the pace of the storyline wasn’t hooking me in as quickly as I’d hoped.

It brings out so many different emotions especially for those who have experienced caring for someone or experienced a loss.I'm not normally sensitive to such sounds - my brother and I are both tinnitus sufferers so we just plug in headphones - but this proved a little too much. After sprinting the length of the beach and climbing over the outcrop’s slippery rocks, Amy was once again face-to-face with the lighthouse. There were parts I really liked about The Lighthouse and parts that made me shake my head in disgust. The romance was barely touched on, which some readers might be annoyed by, but I appreciated it as romance in fiction isn't really my thing.

K. French started writing stories when very young, dreaming of different worlds and places to visit.The town's lighthouse–dormant for over thirty years and famously haunted–has inexplicably started shining, and its mysterious glow is sparking feverish gossip throughout the spooked community. It has been my experience when a male narrator is voicing female characters, it doesn't translate well to the listener.

But as they grow closer, and as the lighthouse glows ever brighter, a startling discovery about Ryan leaves Amy questioning everything she thought she knew.Each print is mounted in an off white mount to 40x50cm, which will fit a standard metric frame size. I didn’t even want to read a book that was full of the magic and enchantment that’s in here, but I did and everything I’ve written here is exactly the intensity of emotions I feel. I’m a sucker for lighthouses, and have even visited several, so when Simone from BooksForward PR offered me the chance to read Christopher Parker’s debut novel, The Lighthouse, I was happy to accept. If you think I'm going try to explain any of that without a Whiteboard, you are having not just a giraffe - but all of London Zoo immediately after it was carpet bombed with the entire contents of Billy Smart's Circus!
