Can you ever escape your fate?
Somewhere in the wilds of Scotland, three boys await their fate. They have been sentenced to twenty years in Glenculloch, a remote prison for the most hopeless of criminals.

Amanda Prowse's first short story is Something Quite Beautiful which was released on the 1st June 2013 as an Amazon Kindle exclusive.​​  Edwina Justice is the only women in a mans prison in a remote area of Scotland. In this short story you get to know three young men not quite out of their teens who are facing the next 20 years at Glenculloch. Edwina Justice is there to ensure they abide by her rules.

  1. Always tell the truth
  2. Always display good manners
  3. Never swear
  4. Work hard
  5. Respect yourself
  6. Respect others
Some say you will never leave Glenculloch but the numbers of prisoners never seems to rise  and there are those that would say once you have been to Glenculloch it would seem like you had never existed.


Considering this is a short story you were still able to learn each of the back grounds of the young men and the trouble that lead each of them to find themselves at her majesties pleasure.  You get to see both sides of Edwina Justice first and foremost as the governor of a men's prison and the responsibility that brings and  the relationship she has with her officers.econdly as a widow of some years who misses her husband and is trying to carry on with her life after his death. This was the first book I purchased for my Kindle and I found it a very easy read. You may have read my previous blogs on Amanda Prowse novels but you  also get a taste of each of her books at the end of Something Quite Beautiful. to help you decide if her other books are of interest to you.
