“SPIRITED WRITING.”

published 18/05/2006

Superb writer that startled me in a wonderful way.

None at all.

I have to admit when I bought this book, I did so based on the picture on the cover, as I did not have my glasses with me. Sounds silly, doesn't it, although relevant to my review of this book since, had I read the descriptions of other works given by the Independent on Sunday, whom I can only...

“Affinity”

published 04/12/2006

Captivating and startling

Prepare yourself a bit

"Her quiet voice, that only I can hear, is the most frightening voice of them all." That voice is the narrative you encounter from the two key characters, but mostly from the protagonist - Margaret Prior who carries you through the spooky and spelling biding journey. Margaret takes us from her...
