The Louise Walters Collection

From the independent literary publisher, Louise Walters Books. Highly readable, beautiful writing, flawless plots, and fully developed characters.

Louise Walters Books describes themselves as:

"tiny, independent, a little bit adventurous, and definitely receptive to books bigger publishers may not be able to consider."

What this means to us at Scarlet Ferret is genre-crossing literary fiction that spans the bridge of highly readable literature (beautiful writing, flawless plots, fully developed characters) and pushes the reader into the deep waters of intrigue, deception, social ills and shattered realities.

In this collection, Louise Walters has given us a paranormal thriller where the devil is in the detail, a cosy without a detective (and questionably without a crime), and a deeply considered, lightly brushed novelette about the highs and lows of real life marriage. The book itself is a metaphor for the story!

Enjoy!

Why you'll love The Last Words of Madeleine Anderson

The Last Words of Madeleine Anderson by Helen Kitson is small-town gossip in novel form, where the truth is a lie, and even the liars don’t know the truth. A post-modern story of the sort of personal intrigue that can only happen to real people, brilliantly written, hard to categorise, and cleverly devised.

Why you'll love The Naseby Horses

Why you'll love In the Sweep of the Bay

In the Sweep of the Bay by Cath Barton is a quiet book with some important themes. Nuanced, undramatic and unsentimental, it deals with the oppression of women and how that affects everyone. An account of an ordinary marriage gone stale, a portrait is drawn of lost potential, constrained dreams and limited lives, but with hope that lingers long after you’ve read it.
