A TO Z BLOG CHALLENGE THEME REVEAL!

Hi! Welcome to my blog!

I'm participating in the 2015 April A to Z Challenge and my theme is topics related to the book I'm currently working on. This one is historical fiction that takes place in England and Wales at the start of WWII. It is inspired by (but not an account of) my mother's experiences as a student in a English boarding school for orphans and fatherless children, and her evacuation with her entire school to the countryside of Wales.

Look forward to your visits!

SHELF FULL OF BOOKS REVIEWS THE CHRISTMAS VILLAGE

Very grateful for this wonderful review for THE CHRISTMAS VILLAGE from Kathryn Svendsen at SHELF FULL OF BOOKS. She'll be reviewing RETURN TO CANTERBURY later this month, when my KINDLE COUNTDOWN PROMOTION kicks off. Stay tuned!

Here's a taste of what she has to say:

There was a lot of exciting action and suspense in the book that will hold the interest of middle graders. Even as an adult reader I didn’t want to put the book down.

I loved the old time feel to the town of Canterbury. With a look back to the depression era, The Christmas Village brought back the old time magical feel that Christmas used to have before all the electronic gadgetry brings now.

I found the resolution to Jamie’s dilemma of how to get home cleverly thought out and executed.

I absolutely loved The Christmas Village. It’s one of those favourites that’ll be one my bookshelves for years to come. I gave this book 5 stars out of 5. A great read for everyone in the family!
