Product description

Book Description

Acutely perceptive and thoroughly entertaining, THEA'S PARROT features some of the loveable characters from Marcia Willett's outstanding first novel, THOSE WHO SERVE.

About the Author

Marcia Willett was born in Somerset, the youngest of five girls. After training to become a ballet dancer, she joined her sister`s Dance Academy as ballet mistress. She then became a naval wife and her son was born in 1970. She now lives in Devon with her husband, Rodney, who first encouraged Marcia to write, and their Newfoundland, Trubshawe.

A really good book, intelligently written, nicely plotted with enough twists and good characters to keep you moving through it. perfect for a rainy afternoon. BUT I REALLY recommend that you read 'Those who serve' first. Two characters from that are continued in this one and while it won't spoil this one if you read without having read the first - it will spoil the first one if you try and read it later after this one.

I purchase these books by Marcia Willet for my Mom who is eighty eight and very active still.
My Mom LOVES these stories by Marcia Willett and has been reading her for many years.
There is still a few she has not read and I am ordering these three today. Could You tell
me if Marcia has a new novel out, and/or is she still writing?

Format: Paperback
Although it can stand as a story by itself, this novel is best read as a follow up to "Those who Serve". Characters from the previous novel join some great new ones to tie up a few loose ends which had been left dangling before. The story flows well, although sometimes a great number of years can pass without the reader knowing it, which can make the storyline seem a bit thin in places.
Despite this, it's still a marvellous story and the characters grow to seem like real friends. I was quite sorry to come to the end of the book and look forward to reading her next novel.
If you like Rosamunde Pilcher, you'll probably find Marcia Willett's books less coincidental and convenient, with much more realistic characters and situations.

Format: Paperback
This was the first book I had read in a while. Throughly Fantastic. The twists and turns were remarkable, however, never confusing. When the book finished I was left wanting more. Extremely easy to read with a wonderful yet simple storyline. How so much was packed into one book amazed me. I had never heard of this author and fancied a change however I shall now seek out their work. It was throughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.

It's inevitable that Marcia Willett should be compared with Rosamund Pilcher and they do share the same genre, yet MW has a style and insight of her own. Poignant at times yet the outcome is satisfying. This is a book to read when you want something undemanding, not too light, but satisfying. It is not chick lit. Her characters are typically MC, many appear in several of her stories and this is comforting to pick them up again in a new context. The style of prose is worthy, nothing coarse, heaven forfend,and there is a definite plot. MW does not aim to shock but to soothe and she achieves this wonderfully well.

Thea inherits a parrot who helps her become more independent. George falls in love. Minor characters from the previous novel by this author are included, which is a little confusing for someone who hasn’t read it, but enjoyable for those who have. Good character studies on the whole, and clever plotting.

Previously read in 2000 but mostly forgotten, other than one or two rather dramatic parts.
