‘Another You’ By Jane Cable

I am about to turn on the shower when I hear it. Distant at first, almost thunder – but with a definite pulse. I throw open the bathroom window and look at the skies; heavy, low and revealing nothing.

Studland Bay is shrouded in early morning mist, still and silent over the sea. The dampness clings to the folded umbrellas in the pub garden, staining the fabric with dark streaks. With the habit born of years I listen for the sea, but all I can hear is thrum, thrum, thrum from above.

The sea is beyond the field beyond the garden. Figures move along the shoreline, somehow lacking the randomness of dog walkers. Something unfamiliar jars. Thrum, thrum, thrum

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • Oh yes, this definitely sounds like a book I’d enjoy. Thank you for featuring.

    Hoping Doris didn’t cause too much damage where you are. Luckily we saw very little of her though Mr T’s brother and his wife were stuck on a train somewhere between Edinburgh and Newcastle for a few hours.

    • Hi Tracy,

      Author, Jane Cable has three novels to her name now, with each one of them having their own unique and compelling premise. She obviously gives very careful consideration when building a storyline for her well defined and developed characters, which makes reading her work a real joy.

      Doris did hit with a vengeance, didn’t she? We had quite a few trees down across the region, although we were fortunate enough to maintain power supplies and luckily missed any of the torrential rain which other places reportedly endured. I’m pleased that you didn’t get any damage.

      Hopefully we will soon have seen the last of these weather episodes for this season, although the pundits are forecasting another cold snap to hit soon!

      Have a good weekend and thanks for stopping by 🙂

  • I know what she’s hearing! (but I also remember the earlier post you did, giving me a clue) It does sound like one I’d enjoy.

    Hoping to finish my current read in time to get it reviewed on Monday, so I’ll hold off on sharing the beginning lines.

    • Hi Kelly,

      I have to admit that I am not a keen fan of re-enactments, no matter which time era or field of battle, they are commemorating.

      However, a storyline which switches back and forth between two time periods is okay, so long as the balance is kept pretty fairly distributed and the story flows well between the two.

      I look forward to catching the review of your latest read and hope that you enjoyed it 🙂

    • Hi Ronnie,

      Thanks for stopping by Fiction Books this week. I always enjoy ‘meeting’ new people, so I shall look forward to your visits and welcome your comments 🙂

      I have quite eclectic reading tastes and I have to admit to enjoying a good family drama from time to time.

      I quite like the premise that the memories of the protagonists in this storyline will keep it moving back and forth between times. So long as the emphasis isn’t placed too firmly on the war time action and remains first and foremost with the emotions and relationships between the various people, then I shall be more than happy.

    • Hi Naida

      Studland Bay, the location setting for ‘Another You’, is very much a real place on the south coast of the UK, which is one of the most sought after and expensive places in the country to live.

      I know that you always enjoy checking out any information about different places and cultures as you can, so I’ll leave links to some images and blurb about Studland Bay!

      https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=studland+bay&client=firefox-b&biw=979&bih=472&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&sqi=2&ved=0ahUKEwjyxOSftKzSAhVHDcAKHS1vBggQsAQINw

      The thunder like noise is almost entirely divulged in the official premise of the book, but just in case you missed it, the sounds are almost certainly a part of the 60th anniversary of a D-Day exercise celebrations taking place and there are plenty of visiting Americans in town!

      Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for visiting 🙂

        • It really is a beautiful part of the coastline, although it is a shame that the village itself has so many holiday and second homes in it.

          Dormitory towns as we know them, are deserted during the week and in the off season winter months, which leaves the small population of permanent residents bereft of services and amenities, which is a real shame and an ever increasing problem in the more popular areas of the country!

          I must admit that until I researched the link to give you a bit of information about the place, I had no idea of the true historical value of the area, so writing about Studland has been a real learning curve for me 🙂
