Taken from the Mixed Fiction Bookbox - "unsettling folk horror a no brainier for me!

Journal Entry 4 by wingPlum-crazywing at Brighouse, West Yorkshire United Kingdom on Monday, August 21, 2023
A strange tale that weaves folk lore & superstition into a story that I find hard to describe! There's a quote on the cover that says "Fletcher excels at infusing the mundane with a slow-burning sense of unease" well, I guess I can't put it any better.

There were times that Daniel's monotonous lifestyle seemed to verge into the dystopian. There were hints of other worldly beings in the offing added to which the locals are seeing ghosts. This leads to Daniel's witchy girlfriend finding herself doing a roaring trade in witch bottles. However, while the locals might be grateful that the ghosts are being kept at bay there are others who aren't very happy about it. Daniel, who is delivering the witch bottles, is about to find that his life is going to get very unpleasant...

At times I found the story a bit disjointed - a new chapter might take on a completely different direction, timeline or even a different narrator - yet somehow this seemed in keeping the unsettling vibe of the book. Things could be a bit grim at times & for me the most horrific thing by far was Daniel's wife's labour - if you're worried about childbirth this isn't the book for you....

Overall an intriguing read that's rather unsettling at times.
