An exciting new author worth reading,
This review is from: The Storms of Life (Paperback)
This historical romance is rich with well-researched descriptions of the life and times. You will soon be caught up in the intimacies and intricacies of the daily lives of its varied characters in the community. The story unfolds amidst authentic scenes of everyday living such that you can smell the barabrith baking, hear the soap dripping onto the pebbles as you are lured into the world of cobbled stones, becoming a part of the complex interwining lives of people not so very different from ourselves. Reading it was like settling down in the village square to catch up on the latest tattle.I read it over Bank Holiday sitting in the rare sun and didn't put it down. For a first book, she has the maturity of a seasoned writer as she develops the characters in the style of Jane Austen, Maeve Binchy and Joanna Cox. If you enjoy a good book that you can savour and get lost in, then put the kettle on!
