Le Chateau
Sarah Ridout

Sarah Ridout’s debut novel, Le Chateau, is an elegant and engrossing read that will certainly stand the test of time with readers. The mystery/suspense that forms the basis of this story was compelling and believable and Ridout presents the story with an integrity that ensured it avoided any cliché sometimes associated amnesia plots.

Told in the first person from Charlotte’s perspective, Ridout bravely and with exacting detail portrays the character’s frustrations, confusion, and uncertainty. This strengthened the story overall and illustrates the power of Ridout’s storytelling and writing abilities.

Another worthy mention is Le Chateau‘s southern France setting which Ridout delivered with a vividly poetic style and provided an additional layer of nuanced beauty to the storyline.

Le Chateau is a must-read novel from one of Australia’s newest storytellers.
