||“The Boathouse collects misfits. Strange solitary creatures that yearn for contact
with the outside world, but not too much. They sit, glass in hand, either staring
at the table in front of them, or at some distant point on the horizon.”
… so says the narrator of Our Beautiful Child. And he’s been around long
enough to know.
People end up in this town almost by accident. Ella is running away from her
nightmares, Sally is running away from the memories of previous boyfriends
and Rona is running away from university. Each of them seek sanctuary in the
18th century pub, The Boathouse; but in fact, that’s where their troubles
Ella finds love, a moment too late; Rona discovers a beautiful ability which
needs refining before she gets hurt; and Sally meets the captivating Murray,
who threatens to ruin everything.
Three women. Three stories. One pub.
