“While reading this book, in my mind I could clearly see the beautiful and charming French cobblestone streets with the timber houses, they were brought to life so perfectly & could even smell taste the lovely treats that were been made daily in the bakery.”

An atmospheric short story set in the Irish countryside.
Catherine returns to Hollowbrook Cottage on a cold November night, looking to escape her present life and lose herself in the past. However, her journey crosses the path of a mysterious stranger who will change her life forever.
As a lover of the Connemara area I was immediately struck by how well the author conjured up the sights and smells of the place. I was transported there much to my delight. Add in the other worldliness of the story and I was hooked. I didn’t want the story to end which is the problem with short stories and great writing – they leave you wanting more.
Amazon Reviewer *****
Betwixt is a half hour read and the author writes a convincing setting and well-rounded characters from the first sentence. Catherine is trying to revisit the past by booking Hollowtree Cottage but it’s out of season, the weather is foul and her trip takes a turn for the worse before she even finds the cottage. In the dark she comes across a stranger who changes everything for her.
This is a beautifully descriptive and well-told story and I thoroughly enjoyed Gaughan’s writing style. The atmosphere builds wonderfully throughout and although I thought I could see the likely outcome it was such an enjoyable read the ending still satisfied. This is an excellent introduction to this authors work and I highly recommend.
