    Om At Abbotsham Cliff

    Think of At Abbotsham Cliff as a literary ramble along the Devon coastline, with interesting characters who are just the right side of believable and a guide who you might ordinarily cross the road to avoid. It is perhaps advisable to read the novel on a sunny day, or when at peace with the world, when it is easier to forgive a man his failings.For those who require a 'heads up', the novel is a love story between Adrian, a man who desires to live alone and Etta, a young woman desperate to be loved. It also involves Navajo spirits who supposedly are protecting Adrian's land but are falling down on the job, a beautiful crusading atheist, death and disappearance, and the dysfunctional family who adopted Etta as a baby and proceeded to ruin her life. As with the author, it is humorous and thought-provoking and is not to be taken seriously. For those who are unaware: Westward Ho! is spelt with an exclamation mark. If it confuses the eye, it is nothing to the confusion it causes the computer. If you want to apportion blame, blame Charles Kingsley: he wrote the seafaring tale of the same name, allowing some bright spark to think it a suitable name for a seaside resort. At Abbotsham Cliff is a tightly drawn novel with characterful characters and asks the question how many coincidences it takes to add up to guilt. The author thinks it rather good, at least by his own standards, and is flattered that the reading public now has the opportunity to pass judgement. It is possible he will not sleep until someone says something nice about it.
