The Stone Boy - Sophie Loubière

well this is a good one, very enjoyable, tough to put down and all that. Elsa reminds me just a bit of Wentworth’s Miss Silver - which means I like her...and if she were Maudie, I would expect her to rescue the so-called “stone boy” who seems to be living a very uncertain existence in the house across the road. but, I’m not sure Elsa is seeing what’s actually there, so this seems more like Rear Window turning into The Conversation (both cool movies), than anything Miss Silver cleaned up.


this novel actually ends at page 254, with some kind of excerpt from another author’s work starting on page 255; so, I’m pretty far along!
