A magical story

I love a story that doesn't reveal itself until the very end. But keeps you hooked and needing to know the entire way through.

A page turner

I read Di Morrissey books all the time , but this will be listed amongst my favourites- the switch between different eras is perfect and the beauty of the surroundings and emotions of people are palpable
