Quiver by Peter Leonard

The story is of Luke and his mum Kate, who is a bit of a superwoman and the loss of her husband: Owen in a hunting accident with a bow, which Luke feels somewhat to blame for. After his death Luke has difficulties settling down, and Kate meets an old flame: Jack, who has only recently been freed from jail, which is unknown to her. Luke disappears and suddenly she is facing a kidnapping, as she has been left a fortune by Owen but instead of falling to bits, superwoman comes to the fore.

I found this book very easy to read and I felt it was written ready for the big screen. I enjoyed the second half of the book more so that the first half as it became easier to understand once you could see where all the characters were merging. I didn’t really connect with the characters and thought that the story was a bit lacking in plot, but I think in film mode this may work quite well.

Overall I would say I enjoyed parts of the story and would recommend it to anyone that enjoys a story written in a format that translates well to the big screen.
