THE BOY AT THE KEYHOLE

Stephen Giles. The Boy At the Keyhole

Another Hawthorne Book Club success. No one liked this book. The child abandonment and child neglect and child abuse were triggering. The characters, boy and caregiver, were unappealing. But discussion brought out the craft, the image of the limited POV as symbolized by the keyhole, the surprise ending made sense. Everyone chose to re-read and enjoyed it more the second time. 
Set in England. Australian author.
