Cape Henry House is a work of fiction in the coming of age, interpersonal drama, and humorous fiction sub-genres, and was penned by author Jolly Walker Bittick. Intended for the general adult reading audience, the book’s central plot follows a group of sailors who take a house away from the base. Thinking that this home will be a chance to kick back, relax and have a few parties, what follows is a heartfelt exploration of the bonds which a group of common souls can make, and how those bonds see them off into a world of adventure when they are sent out into the real world.
Author Jolly Walker Bittick has crafted a magnificent work of interpersonal drama with plenty of laughs, pathos, realism, and camaraderie that will surely warm the hearts of those who read it. One of the features which I found particularly impressive about this piece was the attention to detail in character work and development, describing not only the roles of each sailor in their work capacity but also how the dynamics of their roles lead them to respect, laugh with and occasionally clash with one another, as well as the wider cast of the story. I also really enjoyed how the house almost became its own character within the plot as a symbol of togetherness, craziness, and the chaos of naval life. Overall, I would certainly recommend Cape Henry House to readers looking for accurate realistic fiction about contemporary naval life, books with a warm heart at their core, and for fans of enthused and accomplished dramatic writing.
