Some comments from readers:
We have just returned from holiday where I read this book. I must say that I really enjoyed it, and in parts I could not put it down.

I find Tainted Tree very interesting and readable. The way the plot is developed is very good, the reader can't put it down.
Barbara, Haslemere, Surrey
Great read - I really enjoyed it - genuinely interesting, compulsive reading and so relevant to what is happening today.
Susan, Pirbright, Surrey
I couldn’t put it down - it was a really interesting saga, beautifully written (a real ‘tear-jerker’ at times!) and I loved the characters, especially Addie.

I have read Tainted Tree, despite meaning to save it for my holiday in August. I couldn't resist and read it straight away in great big chunks and really enjoyed it and the twists and turns and highs and lows of Addie's search.

The book was excellent; made me cry near the end. Would have liked another chapter or two. Didn’t want to put it down.

As to Tainted Tree I would absolutely recommend it. I found it a really interesting read, and after a few chapters couldn't put it down. It is an excellent study in human relationships in all their many forms, with a great feel for history, time and place.
Barbara, Thames Ditton, Surrey
Having just been on holiday, I took this book with me to read and I really enjoyed it. It was very good - a page turner.
Beverley, Godalming, Surrey
an excellent plot line … the author has spaced out her revelations to keep the interest going and the mystery developing. I wanted to know what would happen next - the pace was good, the writer’s ear for dialogue, excellent.
