My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If you’re a Ruth Ware fan, you need to sign up for her book club (just because she’s awesome), but also because you can get this short story for free!
The Tale of Mrs. Westaway is a prequel to The Death of Mrs. Westaway that gives the back story of Mrs. Westaway, her marriage, and the development of her family. It took me about an hour to read so is a nice book to read if you need a brain break from longer novels or are looking for a short story to get you closer to your Reading Challenge goal.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…. Ruth Ware is one of those people you either really love or you don’t. I’m on the “really love” end of the spectrum and enjoy everything she writes. After reading The Tale of Mrs. Westaway, I actually wish she would publish more short stories, because the Gothic and ghostly quality of her writing lends itself well to this type of tale.
Thank you to Ruth Ware for sharing this story with her book club members!
