The Magic Ring (Trilogy, Love,War and Betrayal Book 2)
The Magic Ring (Trilogy, Love,War and Betrayal Book 2)
Price: £3.62

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, clever and well worth reading!, 28 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fascinating second novel by P J Craig. It is a moving, powerful and clever story of the love between Margaret Oldham, a doctor, and Jack Kendall a research scientist. But it is also a novel about the new discovery of a wonder drug that is to transform the world of medicine for evermore.
The characterisation of Edith Oldham at the beginning of the novel is very well depicted - she is an intelligent, determined woman, ambitious for her children and for herself despite being married to a man who has no understanding of her needs and desires. I particularly liked Jack Kendall - a clever, handsome young man whose love of the fairer sex is ever present, wherever he is, whatever task he is set!
However, for me the central character of this novel is Margaret - stiff, starchy, uncompromising, whose turbulent life is described so vividly and sensitively by the author. The atrocities and horrors which she witnesses in China.......her bravery and endurance are exquisitely portrayed.
The central theme of this novel has a message for all readers about the use of antibiotics and the implications for the future. The brilliant way in which P. J. Craig crafts his intricate story of penicillin is fascinating.
I urge you to buy this book and read for yourself about the amazing characters and their discovery of the new wonder drug. I enjoyed this book even more than 'A Greater Power' - it deserves to be successful.

I am delighted with this razor which I ordered on behalf of my husband. He likes Philips razors and this particular model was advertised at a much lower price than the same one in the shops. My husband is extremely pleased with it and would certainly recommend it.

This is a very strong, folding stick, which is simply excellent value. It is a proper walking stick - not a pole. It arrived extremely quickly, in time for our holiday. It is perfect, adjusts to a good height and I would certainly recommend it.

This was an excellent purchase. Our previous mattress protector was a very tight fit and didn't stay in place. This one fits perfectly and is of a decent quality. It arrived quickly and was well packaged. I would certainly recommend it.

Nowhere Girl: Shocking. Page-Turning. Intelligent. Psychological Thriller Series with Cate Austin
Price: £4.07

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, compelling read!, 24 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is another compelling read by Ruth Dugdall. Cate Austin is the ex-probation officer who gets involved in the problems surrounding a missing teenage girl, Ellie. The novel is set in Luxemburg where Cate and her daughter live with Cate's boyfriend, who is the policeman in charge of the investigation concerning the missing girl.
This is a very well written novel, an absolute page - turner, showing the points of view of everyone involved in Ellie's life. Cate's vulnerabilities are highlighted even more in this particular novel. She is on the threshold of a new relationship - has she destroyed it by her actions? This is a stand alone novel although it is part of a series involving Cate Austin. I would wholeheartedly recommend this thought-provoking well-written novel, full of suspense - the price is very cheap. Try it! Ruth Dugdall is an excellent author and I have recommended her books to all of my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book - hard to put down, 24 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this a fascinating book. I have enjoyed all of Ruth Dugdall's books so far. This one though made me feel overwhelming sympathy for Ben.....the "villain" of the book. His desire to have contact with his mum was his undoing. The ending came as a huge shock. This is a book that somehow plays with the emotions of the reader and when I finished the book, I was thinking about it for days to come. At times I didn't want to turn the next page because I knew that something unpleasant was about to unfold.

I do not want to give away the plot, but this is an excellent book, compulsive reading and well written. I have recommended it to my friends and would urge anyone to give it a try! You won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating mystery., 21 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This second mystery novel, by Daphne Neville, is once again set in Cornwall and has a supernatural theme. This is a genre which I normally would not read, but this book, set in the fifties has a certain gentle charm and the plot is full of unusual twists which make the reader want to get to the end, where all is revealed. This mystery, centres around George, who begins to get strange dreams which involve characters from the past. The descriptions in this well researched book are beautifully written......particularly those of the countryside and the quirky inn. This is an excellent follow-on from Daphne Neville's first novel - "The Ringing Bells Inn" enabling the reader to track the lives of the characters depicted there.
