Beneath the Willow

Beneath the Willow - Gemma Farrow Farrow’s novella is a creepy little tale of Thomas and Keziah, a brutal encounter one unfortunate night, and the horrifying changes that ensue.

From the outset, the author maintains suspense and piques the reader’s interest. What in the world happened before the story opened that would make Thomas do what he’s about to do? Why on earth would Keziah let him? Farrow spins out the answers at exactly the right pace and offers an unexpected (and rather unpleasant!) ending that’s in keeping with the dark tone of the work.

I recommend this short story to lovers of the horror genre.

However, as is the case with so many indie publications, this book is in need of a good editing. I hope that Farrow will publish a redacted version.
