The Jug and Hare Bathhouse
by Graham Williams

GENRE: Historical fiction

BLURB:

The book deals with a timeless subject, which is as relevant today as it was at the time of King James – the abduction and sexual abuse of children. It is handled sensitively and a distinction is drawn between same-sex, loving partnerships and the cruel use of children bought and sold for the sexual gratification of often wealthy “clientele”.


The story and plot are exciting and well-balanced, with the right amount of tension to make you want to keep on reading. There is a real sense of being in London in the reign of King James and an atmospheric feeling about the taverns, shops and streets as well as the bathhouse itself, all linked to the river Thames and famous theatres of the time. The characters are great and very believable and the action scenes well-written and full of high adventure. It also comes to an uplifting and optimistic conclusion, with some surprising and joyful twists.

About the Author:
Being retired, I have the time now to write and tell stories. I am registered as blind, and I am profoundly dyslexic, and I rely ona the wonders of technology to bring out my stories, and to live. I spend many hours walking around London, as this is where I find most of my inspiration from. The places; sounds and smells of the city, I have a love for. To know one’s history is to know one’s self. I hope you enjoy them.


📖My Review📖

The Jug and Hare Bathhouse by Graham Williams is a historical novel. In it the reader follows Harry and Pep as they are taken and sold into slavery in a ‘stew brothel’. And Follow Richard and William as they try to track and dismantle this child abuse ring.

The Jug and Hare Bathhouse is well written. And while I found the parts with Richard and William engaging, I could not finish this one in one sitting, even with only 176 pages in the pdf copy I read. I had a particular time while reading after chapter seven. I had to put this book down a couple of times.

I do not read historical novels often, and rarely are they dealing with this type subject, so I didn’t like it compared to other historical novels I have reviewed. But I did not hate it. As I said, I think it is well written and I found parts of it engaging. I was drawn into the first two chapters easily.

I would recommend this novel to most readers, but given the sensitive subject, if you are thinking of reading this novel please read all content wanrings.

  1. Hi, Thank you for hosting my book and for the well-balanced review. of book one. It’s one of a trilogy that follows the lads into other adventures and a rise in their good fortunes. from book one which sets their past where book three expands further how all came about in the lads meeting. This book, book one was the first book I had written and it was a difficult one, to balance the subject, which is all too relevant still to this day. and to try to open up that many survive and prosper after such orders, I hope it gives hope in some way. However, do not judge books two and three after the subject matter of book one which is far different to book one. Again thanks to the host for hosting my book and for the review and thank you the readers of books for your interest and maybe support in reading my work.
