Summer Reading

A compelling and at times, confusing read but well worth the almost 600 pages.

From Australia to the Cornish coast you will turn the pages with anticipation and wish to finally find out who and why.


Sorry for the lack of posts but the summer has been a whirlwind since my little trip. Planning three birthdays, holidays away and preparing DN2 to leave for school has been exhausting. Hopefully updates will follow soon!

I hope you are all having a wonderful and relaxing summer.

Looks like an interesting read. Have to look it up on google to find out the plot.

I have this book but haven't dug in yet. With 600 pages it is quite a commitment. Ha ha
I am glad to hear a review, that helps me decide that it is time-

Read it and loved it. I loved the fairytale aspect of it. I recommend The Rock Orchard by Paula Wall.

Hi L,
Thanks for the recommendation! I just downloaded it from -- will be a great travel read for long drives and flights over the next few weeks.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!

I enjoyed this, like you say it can be confusing but worth it and a definite page turner. Have you read her other book?

Great style!

I always like a good book recommendation. Really out of the habit of reading lately and I'm wanting to get back into it again. Especially with the autumn approaching it's good to snuggle up with a good book. Thanks for leaving a message on my blog. Felt so nervous writing again after such a very long time. Lovely to get comments straight away.
