Recent review of “French Sand”.
When I uploaded this book to my Kindle I assumed it would be set in France, but it is not it is in a French colony in the Pacific, and that made it far more interesting I feel, though I do like France.  The plot is really very good and I was totally engrossed, even though the start is a bit slow. Once the story had got going I could hardly put it down.  Some lovely descriptions.

A Call from France
Recent review of my book “A Call From France” :
What a gripping and what a traumatic story ! As a mother and as a Francophile I related to it absolutely, and it left me feeling a mixture of all those motherly instincts when a mother aches for her child. The book is also interesting, simply from the point of view of life in France for a UK family. The “mother” in this story (is it the author herself?) comes over as a very strong person and I admired her determination a great deal. The end made me cry (I won’t say why because it will spoil the story for those who haven’t read it) but there were loads of laugh-out-loud parts in the book, which made a great combination.Fiona Ridge, Birmingham.  To order “A Call from France” on Kindle or as a paperback:-

Review of “Saying Nothing”:-

A strange love story. I didn’t know quite how to take it, though I did enjoy it. The main character, Jane, took a bit of getting used to and right to the very end of the book I wasn’t sure what I felt about her. But it was a good story and I could easily imagine it. Some of the descriptions of Spain were excellent. There is an unexpected twist to the end of the story, which I really liked, I thought it was just right.”
