Summer Secrets by the author Jane Green: Book review

Summer Secrets – my GoodReads.com rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jane Green Summer Secrets

Summer Secrets

Jane Green has written with great insight about a sensitive subject and weaved it in such a way that she exposes the genetic origins of Catherine’s disposition to her addictive behaviour. I like the way that she leads us into thinking quite early in the story, that just maybe her father is not her biological father as they are such polar opposites. Jane Green portrays Catherine’s journey through every cycle of her addiction, while describing the consequences of her actions.

My debut novel Alice

My debut novel ‘Alice’ shares a few similarities to ‘Summer Secrets’ by the author Jane Green. The protagonist of my novel becomes an alcoholic. ‘Alice is at times, a gritty but realistic story of a woman who finds herself in desperate straits. The story tackles alcoholism head-on, and presents the reader with an empathetic account of a spiralling addiction and the resulting pattern of hopelessness that many fall into. My novel follows the protagonist Alice, mother of two and step mother to four, from when life’s problems first begin to scratch away at her self-esteem and follow her in her gradual, but steady, decline. ‘Alice addresses the seriousness of addiction and shows us the importance of love and support for an addict with astounding accuracy.

My debut novel ‘Alice’ will be published on 31st January 2017

The Tea Planter’s Wife by Dinah Jefferies: Book review

I loved the setting of this story, Dinah Jefferies brings to life, the sights and sounds of Ceylon in the 1920’s. Her rich descriptions transported me to this beautiful country. The characters are very much of their time and place. The story gradually unfolds to reveal an interesting twist which kept me guessing until the author in a timely manner revealed the family history. I look forward to reading further novels by Dinah Jefferies.

John le Carré – A Delicate Truth : Quick Book review

John le Carré ‘s ‘A Delicate Truth’ intrigued and transported me into the world of counter terrorism and all that it entails. The plot constantly kept me guessing about a potential conspiracy and what the outcome might be for the British Foreign Office.  A Delicate truth wet my appetite to read further books written by John le Carre.
