Mental health is something that most don’t understand or even feel comfortable speaking about often for fear of getting it wrong. The author has taken us into the minds of what it could be like to suffer with mental health conditions. The story tells a tale about finding a cure to help the world rid of these conditions which on the basis is a well-written story but it can also help you consider how you can help, what it could be like or simply that listening & acknowledging could start to help. I enjoyed the story as a novel but also as a thought-provoking story as we engage in the ‘real’ world. Cathy Small, A LoveReading Ambassador
Lauren Patterson, an American PhD student, makes a remarkable discovery and accidently finds the diaries of Leonardo da Vinci's assistant. Paulo del Rossi's diaries then lead us through love stories, drama, blackmail, murder and the aftermath of monumental deception. The modern day quest to uncover the historical truths are fantastically interesting. Immersive and intriguing, Paulo del Rossi and Lauren guide us through the Renaissance in Florence to Nazi Germany and into the local Costa coffee shop with ease. We even discover the secret of Mona Lisa's smile and follow a tender love story that spans across the years. A fantastic read. Nikki Telling, A LoveReading Ambassador
What a great story, funny and good read - this was published in 2017 - don't know how this bypassed me. This is the true story of a British comedian Dominic Holland - I was vaguely aware of this comedian as a stand-up - no idea he is an accomplished author as well. This is a story of a family- two sides of a story - one the comedian and his eldest son (for me although is more famous for playing Spiderman was the fact he was Billy in the West End Stage show Billy Elliot and I was mesmerised by his take on "Electricity") Father on the tough comedy circuit life can be tough - but don't forget he was voted best newcomer in the 90s at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has gone on to be a well-known comedian - whilst his son Tom lands the role of Spiderman whilst his dad is in small theatres and halls. Written will such admiration and wit this is an author I will be looking out for, and looking to see if he is in a gig in the south-west. Recommended read and an author I recommend also- I am now seeking out other books. Jane Brown, A LoveReading Ambassador
Winner of the Book Excellence Award 2016 for Romance. Thank you for the opportunity to read and review this book. This is a beautiful book the author has created such a detailed account of relationships and beautiful Sardinia. Children of the Mists is a beautiful story consisting of an interesting plot with lovely characters in love in 19th Century Sardinia. I think that this book would be a great sunbed read or, like today, sitting by the fire warmed by some hot chocolate. I cannot believe I have never come across this author before and I am now seeking her out. Jane Brown, A LoveReading Ambassador
A well-crafted story, beautiful language, a mystery and a wild cat with a sense of humour. What's not to like about this book? It grabs the reader's attention from the start and holds on to it throughout the story. I also love the information about Wild Cat conservation which appears before the story starts: hopefully this will encourage readers of all ages to take an interest in the conservation of this beautiful animal. I normally clear my downloads after reviewing a book, but I will be keeping this one to reread and I can't wait to read about Catastrophe's next adventure Pauline Braisher, A LoveReading Ambassador
