Hello everyone. I'm just popping in to say that my latest book, "Daisy's War", has been released (at last!). The description:

In 1914, Daisy lives in the quiet New Zealand valley where her family has farmed for generations. A cherished only child with an adored older cousin, and surrounded by a sprawling extended family, her world seems a warm and safe one.

But the Great War is casting its long shadow over New Zealand. Daisy watches in growing fear as more and more of the men leave to fight in Europe, and the War strikes ever closer to the heart of her family.

"Daisy's War" opens five years after the end of "A Second Chance". The settings and many of the characters from the earlier books are revisited, while a new generation is introduced: that of Amy's grandchildren.

Michelle, the books are also available at other e-book retailers (which I'd better not mention here!), as well as in paperback via Amazon.

I nearly didn't read the first of these books - its a very unsofisticated tale/family saga. Innocent in its way and not the usual 'murder mystery' that attracts me. But it was easy to read so I carried on until I was really hooked. I have read all 4 books and have just down loaded Daisy's War. Couldn't put it down. Lovely story well told

I have just down-loaded book four in this series, it is a 'blessing?' the weather has not been too good recently as I just cannot put my Kindle down when I should be out and about! It is just about the best series of books I have ever read, thank you so much, Shayne, please keep on writing.

I have just finished the fifth. They were all fab! I hope there will be more in the series.

Thanks for the lovely comments, everyone! There certainly are more books to come - I'm working on the next in the series right now. Or at least I will be when I get back to work in a minute. :)

I just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed this series. My daughter emigrated to New Zealand with her family (and my 2 grandchildren) in November 2012 to Rotorua and I miss them terribly. It was by accident I came across this series but was so delighted to read mention of places where my daughter now is, that I felt a sort of tenuous link. It is a fascinating series and a real insight into social history and how far women have come - and still have to come in certain parts of the world. I have read late into the night and found the books to be really well written - I could just picture everything perfectly and whilst I couldn't wait to read to the end, I now feel bereft. Just bought the fifth book, so I now have something to look forward to again. THANK YOU.

Thank you, Angela! It's nice to think my books have provided you with that small link to your New Zealand-based family. I hope you enjoy "Daisy's War", too.

I have read and loved all the books in the series and want to know if there is another one coming after "Daisy's War" ? I really need to find out what else happens.

In reply to an earlier post on 24 Jun 2013 22:39:41 BDT
S. M., there will definitely be more books! I'm still working on the next one in the series, and I'm afraid I'm rather a slow writer (partly because I like to spend a lot of time on research), but I do have plans for several more beyond that.

I have just been checking on your books on Google to find out more about you and your writing. It is a long while since I have found a series of books that have kept me so engaged and unwilling to put the book down. I came across the first in your trilogy of Promises to Keep by accident on my kindle and I am now two thirds of the way through Mud and Gold. I will be adding your other books to my kindle. Not much more to add apart from to say that I am finding Amy's plight very harrowing but totally engrossing. What an amazing and inspiring character!
