2.0 out of 5 stars Sad but not a compelling read., 14 May 2015
The past can define you and will bring you down, but only if you allow it. We are all a product of our parents parenting, good or bad. This was a sad account, similar experiences to so many of the time, perhaps even more commonly known today, but not a compelling read for me. A very short story.

I love love love Yvonne Joye' s style of writing. This is an incredibly open and honest account of her journey with cancer. Enough medical detail to encourage other women, and men, to find the time to do what's necessary. Whilst also offering an insight to what lies ahead to those on the start of their own journey with cancer. Niall is a wonderfully strong calm man, so very lovely. Beautifully written.

If you haven't already Joye' s Ten Fingers and Ten Toes is another great read.

Incredibly emotional and heart wrenching. The first moments when Yvonne and Niall met Matthew again on Unit 8 were palpable, so beautifully written, as was their final goodbye. How can any parent ever be ready?

1.0 out of 5 stars A very difficult read., 25 April 2015
This review is from: My Story (Kindle Edition)
I believe there is a tragic but brave story of survival to be told here. Sadly I could not read beyond the first few pages so poor the spelling and grammar. With little or no comprehension or punctuation it makes reading very difficult.

I'm sure with help of a ghost writer and perhaps less of the faith, as important as it is to the author, this could be story that pulls at the heart strings, however in it's current format it's a missed opportunity.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing for Shea, 25 April 2015
The beginning of the "novella" was full of promise but sadly it was not to be.

The opportunity to describe the beautiful and elegant gowns of the 18th century would have added more to the piece but instead consisted of virtually every female, bar one, dressed in ivory silk and adorned in moonstone gems.

When reading period pieces we should be taken back on a journey in time, reading of costumes, of language, etiquette and of behaviours. In an era of horse drawn carriages and where a defined social class existed, where Gentlemen were seen to be Gentlemen and Ladies were Ladies, I don't believe the language of choice would include; mom, boyfriend, hustle, stuff or phrases such as "hanging out" or "you got that right".

Honour and pride were important, as was reputation. The clandestine encounter between Felton and Julia kissing under the stairs would be more believable if located somewhere less public. I doubt even Julia's character would be so brazen in the presence of others.

It maybe a tad picky but as the book is set in Bath, England should we really expect American nouns and spellings to be used? A corner referred to as a "block" and a crossroads as an "intersection"? Neighbour spelt without a u and jeopardise with a z? More attention needed to grammar and the use of punctuation. Why the use of a comma every time "and" is used?

Sorcha's short encounter with Jonathan gave no real foundation or conviction to justify Julia's plan for Sorcha' s early demise.

If you enjoy reading authentic, well researched historical pieces with believability, then sadly One Scottish Lass is not the book to read.

Strength in Strangers: A true story of heartbreak, hope and courage

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh My Goodness. A MUST read!!!!, 9 April 2015
Lauren & Andrew Britton's story really is a wonderful testament to human nature and how when in need so many will step forward and freely give what is needed with no ulterior motive or for personal gain. Expect to have your heart pounding at the turn of every page and absolutely wishing and willing for a positive outcome.

To the author; I feel privileged to have read your story. I have not been so moved in a very long time nor experienced, from the written word, such an emotional roller coaster. Andrew's story is a stark reminder of why being a blood donor and being registered as an organ donor is so important. The reason why we should all give of ourselves to help others where and when possible. Strength in Strangers!

2.0 out of 5 stars Getting a tad unbelievable, 1 April 2015
I enjoyed the first quarter of the book, in particular the way stories and recollections from the first book were retold from another characters view. Often miles apart! However, from there on in it all became a little "silly" and more than a tad unbelievable. Far too many characters with skeletons in their cupboards. Deviant behaviour, some of which were of the most disturbing kind. All too much, adultery, sodomy, child rape, incest, STD, abortions, dementia, eating disorders, sexual and physical harassment, alcoholism, and much more!! All thrown in the mix for what transpired to be a disappointing follow on book. I won't be purchasing the books to follow, of which there are another three and no doubt much more of the same!

4.0 out of 5 stars The story continues comfortably, 23 Mar. 2015
Naomi' s story continues as expected. However, just when things appear to be as horrid as they could possibly be her life takes a 360° turnaround and is better than Naomi could ever have hoped for. Then......??????....

The story does ends abruptly pending the next in the sequel.

An editorial mistake not picked up by the proof reader. David invited Naomi to celebrate "Twelfth Night" (about 64% into the book) but Naomi is referred to as Elizabeth, not once but twice on the same page. A minor distraction easily resolved with better proof reading.

I look forward to the next edition of this moving journey in a woman's life.

4.0 out of 5 stars A real page turner, 21 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pam of Babylon (Kindle Edition)
There is a theory that all our lives are connected in someway by people we don't yet know. If you don't believe you just may after reading this book. Some totally unexpected curve balls thrown in the storyline and at times a real page turner. A journey of self discovery for Pam! The book does just abruptly end though with far too many loose ends or perhaps another book to follow? I hope so!

Oh my goodness. On tender hooks with the turn of every page with the book ending on a real cliff hanger. I'm now hooked and need to read the follow on book.
