I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the revised edition of Celia Moore’s debut novel: Fox Halt Farm.
Fox Halt Farm is quite a compelling debut novel. The story starts with a young couple, Richard and Janette, on their honeymoon in Greece but something catches Richard’s eye and he’s startled to discover a young woman has fallen from the cliffs onto the shoreline. Desperate to help Richard was first on the scene. This was to become the start of an unorthodox, emotional journey for both Richard and the young woman who had fallen, Billy.
Back home in the UK Billy was so angry with Richard for saving her. Now a few years have passed and Billy is in her final year at university and a link to Richard is propelled towards her again.
Billy was quite a complex character who gives her heart out easily. She’s very bright and focused in her studies but socially she folds up within herself and only has a small network of friends. One of her networks was her home back in Dartmoor, Devon on Fox Half Farm. Billy has fond memories of working on the farm with her parents, her Grandfather and her best friend, Tom. Fox Halt Farm was to prove to be a beacon of comfort, protection and hope for many.
Billy’s life was about to become a whole lot more tangled when personal emotions become embroiled in business.
Fox Halt Farm is a story that spans two decades following the life of Billy after her eventful day in Greece.
The author, Celia Moore, has wound many twists and turns in this story and I few I couldn’t see coming and when my head and heart recovered from this bolt I felt broken. Billy’s vulnerability shone throughout the story but there was a hidden vulnerability within another character that once revealed led to catastrophic events.
An emotional and compelling debut novel with a chilling twist.
