Brilliant! A must read for all mothers and daughters.
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

Well I've just finished Redemption in Eden and want to let you know how much I've enjoyed it. A truly sweet book set in a context of bereavement and betrayal. A heart warming tale of hope and restoration. I loved the descriptions of country life, the fruit and veg growth, the jam and chutneys, the restoration and improvements to Stoney Lea, the children and animals, supportive friends, ghastly in laws, local characters etc all added up to a nourishing tale of country folk.
This feel good novel describes rural village life in all its colour. The relationships between family, friends and neighbours are skilfully captured and the reader is drawn into the loves, hopes, dilemmas and secrets of the characters. Outwardly idyllic, things are not as they seem, and as the novel unfolds it becomes clear why. Extensively researched, the vivid descriptions of the village, homes and country kitchens is brought to life with an impressive plethora of tastes, earthy smells and distinctive rural sounds. This is a great read.Five stars if course!
