Format: Paperback
I loved this book, it hooks from the very beginning right to the end. Patrick Redmond has a wonderful writing style that really keeps you turning the pages. It is the story of Ronnie, the illegitimate son of a young orphan girl; they live with relatives who make them feel unwelcome, and Susan, a young girl fom a loving family, whose father dies when she is a child, leaving her as prey for her future stepfather, who abuses her.
Sounds a bit depressing but it's not, it's just absorbing, absolutely riveting, and very very sad.
It's not your standard story of an abused child though, far from it, this is a pyschological thriller. Ronnie is basically pretty disturbed, he's out for revenge on anyone who wrongs him or his loved ones, and his revenge can be murder. Susan is drawn to Ronnie and they become teenage sweethearts, but of course it all ends in a shattering climax.
Brilliant. What has happened to this author though? I can only find four of his books, and the last of those was a couple of years ago, even his website is fairly out of date. Does he not write any more? If not, what a great shame.

I’ve now read all five of Patrick Redmond’s books and this one ranks alongside “The Replacement” as my absolute favourites. It follows the lives of Ronnie and Susie; two children growing up in post war Britain, struggling to survive in a world full of neglect and abuse. But neither will allow themselves to be victims and when they finally meet then it’s time for the guilty to start paying…

I just couldn’t put this book down! It’s completely gripping, extremely moving – I was in tears more than once – and the ending, which as with Patrick’s other books I didn’t see coming, was absolutely terrific. Apple of My Eye is a riveting story, brilliantly told, and I cannot recommend it highly enough!

In my opinion Patrick Redmond is a breath of fresh air from other writers. This book was a believable story from start to finish, nothing far fetched at all. I just couldn't put it down. I've read his other two books, but for me, this one was the best. It was, at times, quite scary, and I must admit I had to put the book down a few times to collect my thoughts. Very thought provoking with strong characters. I hated Vera with a vengeance and a passion I didn't know existed in me. It did remind me of times gone by and of some of my friends and their adolescence. I'm highly recommending Patrick's book, it's different, it's believable, it keeps you wondering what's going to happen next and the ending was not what I was expecting at all. A totally satisfying read which will stay with me for a while yet. I loved the Puppet Show and the Wishing Game, but this one, in my opinion is his best yet. I don't think we've heard the last of this author, in my view he's a star and I shall definately purchase his books when they come out. Thank you for a great read Patrick, more of the same please.

Patrick Redmond writes with emotions.This book will touch your heart. Ich read all books of him in English and German Language but this is my favorite book. I read it to the end and read it once again because it was so good.
It is ghastly as the count of Monte Christo and so sad as Les Miserables.
I hope that Patrick Redmond will write more books.
Greetings from Germany

I like this book a lot, and was completely drawn in to the characters, especially those of Ronnie and his mother. An intriguing story of psychological mind games, obsessive love and secrets that should never be told!

Gripping storyline, as usual Patrick Redmond did not let me down! He is am amazing author and this book was fantastic. I really felt like I was part of the characters. they were all so real and could easily get into the story. I was a bit sad to be finished though. I have one more of his books to read, then I am hoping more will be coming out soon!

Format: Paperback
This novel has all the plot and details it needs to be a great story. Intricate circumstances that are mostly believable even if at times rather extreme. There is also a lot of pathos, empathy and compassion. The story of two generations of young people, the first generation becoming grownups, the fathers and mothers of the second generation. The first remark here is that the two younger ones, a boy and a girl, a daughter and a son, are both deprived of their fathers, by different circumstances but the result is the same. This is a characteristic that reveals something about the imagination of the author. The boy is deprived of his father even before birth, a soldier on the way to the front in 1944. The daughter is deprived of hers by his sudden death when she is seven, in front of her eyes due to a massive heart attack. The two mothers have one single problem : to survive and both will reach the same solution : to get married for one and remarried for the other. In the first case it will be with a good man. In the second case with a despicable man. But the only objective was wealth both for themselves and for their children, though it seems to be more for the son than the mother in one case, and definitely for the mother more than the daughter in the other case. The whole book is thus the detailed stories of these two children who become teenagers. The daughter will live on her recollection of her father and suffer the stepfather who is abusing her sexually as long as she is a child. He stops when she gets into puberty. The son will survive with relatives who despise his mother and exploit and humiliate her.Read more ›
