Product description

About the Author

Jayne Lockwood has self-published two novels and is working on her third. She lives just outside London, in the Chiltern Hills where she grew up. The Cloud Seeker is set in the village where she lived until recently, and her third novel will also be set in the local area. It is a land of secret woods and wide vistas, topped with glorious skies. There are many great characters and old stories, and it is where she gets her inspiration. Having said that, some of her work has a distinctive Stateside flavour (Closer Than Blood) as she lived in New Jersey in the 1990's. Her time there was also incredibly rewarding, and she tries to bring some of the experiences she had into her writing. Jayne says that her writing is unpredictable, offensive in some places and romantic in others, but really, it is up to the reader to decide. Her cat is called Keith. He says she is terrible at writing biographies.

One of the very best contemporary fiction books I have ever read! As I live in rural Buckinghamshire I can identify the locations which adds to the experience but is not essential to the enjoyment of the book. I particularly recognised the Village Garage!
The book is well written, in proper English- very often a good story is ruined by poor English, but not in this case. The descriptive prose flows off the page. It is well paced, the first half of the book is gentle, drawing you into the lives of the characters before the pace picks up and secrets are exposed. It is also incredibly well researched, particularly the events of 9/11 and descriptions of clouds.
The characters are beautifully drawn, flawed and human - you are really rooting for them to find solutions and happiness.
As with other reviewers I will not give the plot away but I genuinely didn't see it coming- that's the only clue you'll get!
The only thing that makes me unhappy is that I have finished it and won't be able to look forward to another chapter each evening! I am looking forward to reading more of Jayne's books

An enthralling tale with plenty of fascinating and complex characters, the landscape and sky being two main ones.
It's an incredibly well written story, told by a true raconteur, that intrigues, delights and at times wrenches the heart, with just the right amount of twists and turns.
It kept my attention steadfast throughout and although I didn't quite read it in one go, it was very difficult to tear myself away.
I will be looking for more by this author.

The Cloud Seeker is a tale set in a small English village. The setting and the characters are extremely well drawn. I found myself longing for summer reading some of the descriptive passages!
Having also read Jayne Lockwood's Closer than Blood I can safely say that she is not afraid to tell things as they are, and neither are her characters. Favouring to some extent the unconventional, Jayne Lockwood paints as honest picture of people with their flaws unhidden but forgiven where appropriate. The Cloud Seeker's cast are easy to believe in, indeed I found myself recognising some of the characteristics of many of the characters from real life.
This is a really enjoyable read - lovely for UK readers who can recognise their own environment and society, but also a brilliant insight to non-UK readers, into the realities of life in the beautiful British countryside.

A very good read, well written with both a believable plot and fascinating characters. A story not just of romance but of so much more. The author's knowledge of clouds was encyclopaedic and woven skilfully into the fabric of the story. In addition there was a vivid portrayal of life and education in rural Buckinghamshire as well as life in New England, which must have been based on real experience. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this book - I couldn't put it down. I become very involved with the characters and their lives right from the start. The plot is intriguing and modern, with twists that I didn't expect. Ms Lockwood's descriptions are vivid, and her writing style is immensely readable. Unreservedly recommended.

This book has been on my Kindle for almost a year and a half but I am so glad I found it among all my other 'not yet read' books last week. I really loved the book and look forward to reading more from this author. Wonderful, human characters and a great storyline.

Two people struggling to overcome incredibly painful pasts, a horribly complex extended family-like network complete with vulnerable child and evil mum, with a dash of the mystic. Great read, good characters and a nicely twisty plot. Recommended

Wow! What a find. This book takes you on a journey that grips you right until the last page. I don't want to give anything away or reveal any of the plot but recommend anyone to give this a go. I loved it!
