"Speaking to both heart and mind, this is a truly lovely and beautifully engaging collection of festive short stories."
This interlocking collection of uplifting short stories taking place over Christmas is soul-warming. Each tale is set in and around a small town in Sussex, and takes delight in exploring the joy in the small things that actually matter most, and should be held close to our hearts. I would advise reading these stories as they are presented, there is a link that would be broken if you read out of order. Author Deborah Jenkins has the gift of observation, she is able to draw back the curtain between hearts and minds, revealing truth. There is an understated expressive eloquence on offer, it glides from the page to gently settle in place. The characters within felt as though they had been waiting to be introduced to me, there was an intimacy, a feeling of knowing, of connection. Each story sits perfectly in its own right, yet together they form a touching and rewarding whole, to which we have rewarded the title of LoveReading Star Book. Perfect reading as the nights draw-in, Winter Lights is a highly recommended, absolute delight.
