My cousin had a car crash and she now is on a wheel chair, she kept closing her door she didn't talk to anyone, she broke up with her boyfriend and she stopped eating. When I read this book I thought of her and I given it to her first she didn't want to take it but then she did and she read it, now she is hanging out with her friends and she eats and she talks so much that everyone now closes their ears. Shes the happiest person on earth! And I LOVE her!

A Fan!

I want to thank Jenny Brown Agent for Bringing my book, Island Wife, to the hallowed halls of Two Roads Books and Lisa Highton, Book Mother. I had no idea, when writing my story, that it would impact women right across the globe. I had no idea of the humbling of such a journey, nor could I have guessed at the level of excitement I would feel, seeing my book in print, even now. I knew how I could be lifted from the ordinary into a new hope on reading another's story, but never thought I could do the same. If your story burns holes in your britches then tell it out, for you just never know what heart is waiting to hear it.

Judy Fairbairns

I want to thank Elizabeth Wein and Katherine Rundell for both being authors who have created strong,young, believable, prejudice-challenging female characters as central to their novels. Very refreshing!

Sue Clapham

I want to thank John Steinbeck for Telling great stories that need to be told time and time again and will until people get the message of what it means to be a human being. Thank you for colouring these stories with rich description and memorable characters so that your lessons are a joy to read - serving a second lesson in how we may write extraordinarily.
