  • Threads of Life is a beautifully written, keenly observed story about the relationships between the women in a town called Wainbridge. Reading Patricia Jones’ writing is like savouring a well-made dish, rich and flavoursome.

  • Just finished “Threads of Life’ and really loved it. I got so involved in the lives of the different families that I couldn’t put the book down! Very well done indeed. I was impressed at how competently you handled so many storylines and characters. Definitely in the tradition of Jane Austen’s social observation, and the modern ‘family sagas’. Did you say there would be a sequel? I can’t bear to think of Sylvia having lost her beautiful house permanently, or Miriam not knowing where her daughter is etc etc Congratulations on such a great achievement. Love Loretta x
