The Fathers, The Sons and the Anxious Ghost by Jamie Adams

Book blurb

Three guys in their thirties have something in common. Their children all go to the same school. One day a tragic event leads to them having to deal with a lurking aftermath which draws them into each other’s lives and causes them to rethink their attitudes to just about everything. The children tell the second part of this story, ten years after the initial events. The dust seems to have settled until one of them uncovers information that throws everything back into chaos. The third part… well that will have to wait.

My Thoughts

This is a little gem of a novella. Written from several viewpoints – three Fathers, three Sons and well you’ll never guess!

It’s interesting to read from an almost totally male perspective it gives a different slant on what’s happening.

Anyway, three fathers connected because their sons attend the same school. The school play for their year is taking place. There’s a bit of a kerfuffle between a couple of the lads. However, what transpires after they return home shakes them all and has far-reaching consequences.

10 years later the Sons take on the story. Someone close to them all is only now showing signs of being affected by what happened all those years ago. Why now? What should they do? As the three Sons try to help what really led up to the tragedy comes out. We also learn how far each of the characters have moved on, or not, over the intervening years.

Finally, the last word is left to the only one who could bring a proper conclusion to what happened but any more might give too much away!

I do like to read short stories and novellas because when they are good they leave you feeling that you have read a really pared down and yet fully formed story, you are not left needing more. Although, you may well want more of the same from the author.

With The Fathers, The Sons and the anxious Ghost that is exactly what you get.

Author: Jamie is a teacher who has studied a geography degree back in the nineties because of his love of nature and the outdoors. He found environmental education especially important and soon became a teacher for the primary-age group. Jamie enjoys reading and watching all kinds of theatre productions, from high dramas to lively musicals. His love of writing shines through in everything he does.

After writing a group of short stories linked to romance, which he published as ‘Short Dates’ independently, he decided to write a novella centred around topical issues such as mental health, parenting and relationships.
