Review by Rose

In the fall of 1789, on the western edge of the Yorkshire Dales, a dense, persistent fog enshrouds the village of Ingleton. Shadowed spirits hide in the mist and bedevil the townsfolk, heralding a tragedy that has befallen one of their own.

Edmond continues to search for Alexandra, his fiancĂ©e, who disappeared the same night that the mist set upon their town. Presumed dead by all others, he visits Alexandra’s empty grave, desperate for any hint of what has become of her. Weary from the sleepless nights on his quest, no longer able to stay awake, Edmond falls into a dream before her headstone and there obtains clues from Alexandra as to her whereabouts.

Discussion of a Decent Dream is a Finalist in Britain’s Wishing Self Book Awards in the Adult category.

This is one of the most beautifully written books I’ve read in a long time. The words and phrases were so lyrical it was almost like reading poetry. It is not a book to be hurried through. It is, instead, a book to take your time with, to savor, perhaps even to reread in order to fully grasp all the richness that fills it.

The basic story is told in two parts– one point of view is Edmond’s, while he searches for Alexandra. And on the other hand, we have Vigil who is overlooking the action and recording it. The book is told on many levels and in many times, with these times sometimes colliding with each other. There are symbols and images I felt I was just on the edge of grasping, and that did occasionally frustrate me. However I feel as if it was my issue more than the book’s.

I’m looking forward to delving back into this book and try to fully understand all the nuances. Kudos!
