FIRST REVIEW

 

Corner cover (2)

It’s always a bit nerve wracking on publication day when the book you’ve spent a year writing is suddenly released into the big wide world. The girl from the corner shop is on her own now and I hope she does well. The first review from book blogger Grace  is lovely and I’m so glad she enjoyed it.

“This is a well-written tale of life in Manchester during WWII. The hard life endured, especially by women and children, is all between the pages and the pioneering spirit shines through. With a great variety of characters and some skilful writing, it’s a very easy read and packed with detail. Several interweaving stories all twist together beautifully to make a very endearing read with, along with grief and sadness, a bit of mystery and a bit of romance. By the final page, all the loose ends are neatly tied off – my much preferred ending! An excellent wartime saga and well worth reading. For me, this is a five star novel.
