Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Can casual infidelity ever be justified as the results are inevitably far-reaching and ultimately destructive, especially if all parties affected live in the same village. Diana takes us through the whole sorry business with sympathy, understanding and sadness. A very sensitive book, very moving.

Comparison: Joanna Trollope, Elizabeth Buchan, Amanda Brookfield.
Similar this month: None but try Penny Vincenzi or Eva Rice.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
