Summary

The beauty of the Cornish countryside...

The innocence of childhood in the 1980s...

An ancient mystery not quite forgotten.  

Mullaney-Westwood's first novel is a spiritual coming-of-age tale mixing haunting faery lore, pagan values, and a deep love for the natural world.

Fairy tales are one thing...faeries are another.

'"A magical tale of folklore and childhood by a new and exciting author." (Jess Richards, author of Snake Ropes and Cooking with Bones)

Forgotten Things is a novel of nature in contrast: sinister, beautiful, wise, and innocent. With an otherworldly twist, it explores the importance of influences; of growing up while still looking backwards. We see through the eyes of one man recounting the bittersweet memories and adventures of his childhood. We see his love for the woods and his draw to them but also his fear.

Similar to a classic ghost story, the horror is subtle and unnerving, while the fantasy is simply a glimpse into another reality. The little people are our antagonists, spoken of in whispers and presented in their true form. They are age-old beings which transpose boundaries - taken seriously and sitting in mysterious juxtaposition with the secular world.
