The Faerie Tree, the new novel by Chindi author Jane Cable, has been listed as one of The Bookseller’s Independent Author Preview titles for May. “The Bookseller is the UK publishing industry’s bible and to be selected is a huge honour” says Cable.
The Faerie Tree is a suspenseful romance about a couple who meet again twenty years after their brief affair and discover their memories of it are completely different. Inspired by a tree on the banks of the River Hamble where children – and adults – leave gifts and messages for the faeries, the book mixes mystery and romance with a sprinkling of folklore which all makes for a gripping read.
Fellow Chindi author Jill King was amongst the first to review The Faerie Tree: “The book has both a mystical and a romantic theme, with the relationships between Robin, Izzie and Claire developing against a backdrop of folklore, paganism and loss. The pervading sense of grief is for both lost love and for lost memories that start to come back in strange and curious ways. It makes this book a real page turner. The story is well paced and, as you get to know them, the characters reveal complexities that challenge your initial assumptions.” This is high quality writing, and the author is very talented. Her characterisation is outstanding, the story is impeccably paced and very convincing. A great novel, and one that I’d certainly recommend.”
The Faerie Tree by Jane Cable is published through Matador and is available in all ebook formats and on paperback from Amazon and Waterstones online and locally from Ivory & Pitch in Westbourne.
