I’m blown away by this review of Stolen Summers

I’m truly honoured by this fabulous review from Judith Barrow, an author whose novels about the challenges facing families I very much admire. Here are just a few of her kind words – pop along to her blog to read the full account.

“I admire this author’s writing style and her ability to draw the reader into the world of the characters [creating] an overriding atmosphere, so skilfully portrayed that it’s impossible not to feel the emotions of the protagonist and a sense of the place she inhabits.”

I’m glad to say she found some uplifting passages and some humour despite the gloomy setting of Ghyllside psychiatric hospital. Many thanks to Judith for reading so carefully and sharing her reflections on line.
