The Lamplighters by Emma Stonex review – haunting folk tale rebooted
Three lighthouse keepers in 70s Cornwall vanish in an elegant update of an early 20th-century mysteryAnyone who grew up in Scotland in the 70s and early 80s can tell you about the lighthouse keepers of the remote Flannan Isles in the Outer Hebrides in the early 20th century. The story of the three men who settled down to eat only to seemingly vanish into thin air haunted my childhood – and it would appear that of Emma Stonex too. The author’s first novel under her own name transports the location to the close-knit but still remote Cornish coast and updates the action, plausibly, to 1972 – an era when mobile phones don’t exist – before flashing forward to 1992 when an investigative journalist believes he has uncovered the truth but needs the men’s very different widows and girlfriends to prove it.These tweaks apart, events remain unnervingly similar: the stopped clocks; the unfinished meals; the log that records a heavy storm despite clear skies that week; the mysterious visitor.

A couple with young children want a long-term home in Liverpool and are feeling the strain of living with the in-lawsQ My fiancee and I are looking to buy a home in Liverpool. Our budget is about £160,000, which includes a cash deposit of £22,000. We’re looking for a three-bed house ideally with a bit of garden. We’re not afraid of some work to get a home renovated – and would most likely be doing so whatever we bought, so it would be a good long-term home for us and our two young children.We are living with my in-laws but would like to be in our own place as soon as possible. There’s a lot of unnecessary arguing and shouting in the house which is really affecting the mental health of my children and my partner. However, my in-laws are convinced that because of inflation house prices are artificially high, and are due to drop considerably later this year. Continue reading...
