Description

The beauty of the Cornish countryside... The innocence of childhood in the 1980s... An ancient mystery not quite forgotten. Mullaney-Westwood's first novel is a spiritual coming of age tale mixing haunting faery lore, pagan values, and a deep love for the natural world. Fairy tales are one thing...faeries, are another. 'A magical tale of folklore and childhood by a new and exciting author.' (Jess Richards: author of 'Snake Ropes' and 'Cooking with Bones') 'Forgotten Things' is a novel of nature in contrast; sinister, beautiful, wise and innocent. With an otherworldly twist it explores the importance of influences; of growing up, whilst still looking backwards. We see through the eyes of one man recounting the bitter sweet memories and adventures of his childhood. His love for the woods... his draw to them... but also his fear. Similar to a classic ghost story the 'horror' is subtle and unnerving, while the 'fantasy' is simply a glimpse into another reality. The little people are our antagonists, spoken of in whispers and presented in their true form; age old beings which transpose boundaries- taken seriously and sitting in mysterious juxtaposition with the secular world.show more
