REVIEW ~ NIKI PRESTON ~ 4 STARS
What a great selection of short stories based around love, loss and life in between. A brilliant audio that makes for an interesting listen. Each story was brought to life superbly well by the narrator, Sandie Keane. her voice has an exceptional quality that made her very easy to listen to.
I particularly enjoyed Garden Therapy as I am a strong believer in the fact that gardening is so good for our mental health. It really is quite uplifting and shows how we can all move on from our pasts if we need to.
I found Suzanne’s writing style was wonderfully creative and really lent itself to this anthology. You really get drawn in and each story feels complete even though they are all short. She definitely gets to the heart of each one with a precision that makes you wonder how on earth she managed to create each differing story with such honesty. A great listen all round.
Author Bio –
Suzanne lives in Middlesex, England with her husband, two teenagers, a crazy cocker spaniel and an adopted cat that thinks she’s the boss.
Suzanne’s writing journey began at the age of twelve when she completed her first novel. Giving up work to raise a family gave her the impetus to take her attempts at novel writing beyond the first draft, and she is lucky enough to have a husband who supports her dream – even if he does occasionally hint that she might think about getting a proper job one day.
Now an author of four novels including the Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy and her debut, Visions of Zarua, plus three short story collections, Suzanne hopes the dreaded ‘W’ word will never rear its ugly head again!
Suzanne collects books, is interested in history and enjoys wandering around castles and old ruins whilst being immersed in the past. She likes to combine her love of nature and photography on family walks, but most of all she loves to escape with a great film, binge watch TV shows, or soak in a hot bubble bath with an ice cream and a book.
With Thanks for the Advance Audio to …..
