Once I began reading this story, I had to reach the end. It's fast-paced and full of suspense. The end of this story has me thinking about fantasy, reality, and our own ability to interpret events and convince ourselves of what is true... even if it's not. I believe this story will mean different things to different readers.

This is an imaginative and engrossing story.

I liked.
Excellent reading.

‘Hope’s Well’ tells the tale of Verity Buckthorne and her fascination with a mysterious well near her home.

The reader develops quite an insight into the working of Verity’s mind by reading her diary entries, which makes the story interesting on a psychological level as well as a fictional one.

The tale is crafted cleverly, with a slow build toward the climax and suggestions of other mysteries along the way. It has a lovely reminiscent sense of times gone by and old-fashioned

A bit of a trip down mystery lane

Spur of the moment I grabbed this book, not knowing what to expect.
It has a bit of fantasy, intrigue, paranormal and a mystery to solve. It has two distinct povs, one as a diary and the other an investigator report. I throughly enjoyed it! I would recommend this book.

Hope's Well is a short but super fun story. Told in the form of diary entries from a missing girl and investigative notes from the detective searching for her. It was a well executed story. Well worth (a little of) your time!

As soon as I started to read this short story I had to finish it. Brilliantly woven with suspense, the story is told through the use of diary entries so the reader gets an intimate ride and as its a clean read it has a wide ranging age range.

Great tale

I've always liked stories told through journal entries or dear diary like this one. They seem so much more intimate. This story is told through the diaries of two girls that have disappeared and also the investigator hired to find them.
