Editorial Reviews


Reviewed by Natasha Jackson for Readers' Favorite

What is so great about Alexandra the Great is the slow simmer of the connection between Mike and Alex. So much happens in this story and it doesn't feel crammed in for entertainment value. While I appreciate a happy ending, I do appreciate the fact that Alex didn't have to be the one to do all of the forgiving in order to find some semblance of peace. A wonderful story of getting past old demons, even if you can't forget them, to forge a healthy and happy future.

The most striking thing about Alexandra is not her beauty, though she is very attractive. Nor is it her business prowess , though she is a successful business woman. The essence of her character is control - Alexandra organises her life with military precision. Work , no-strings-attached relationship with a married man and Max , her dog , the only soft spot in an otherwise clinically cold lifestyle.
Her self-imposed control is ripped apart one morning when she witnesses a motor accident. She is first on the scene when a motorbike rider is seriously injured and needs resuscitation. Alexandra gives him mouth-to-mouth and thus saves Mike's life but without wanting to, creates a bond between herself and the man she had breathed life into.
Introduction to Mike's grateful family , the warm and loving Davies clan , causes Alexandra to think of her own family and her childhood - something she had trained her self not to do. The death of her mother brings more childhood memories to the fore. It is then , with her carefully constructed wall of self-defence crumbling around her , that Alexandra faces the real reason for her need to control and her fear to give herself totally to anyone else , either emotionally or physically.
With sensitivity and skill , Paulette Rae teases out Alexandra's memories and buried emotions , allowing the hurt inner child be heard so that the woman could at last be free .

More About the Author

Paulette was born in Christchurch, New Zealand. At the age of nine her parents moved to the Kenepuru Sound, where she attended a small rural school. There she met a teacher who awoke in her a passion for writing, which continued into her teenage years. Often she would write vivid imaginings of shipwrecks on deserted islands involving her classmates, to stave off the boredom of their regimented boarding school life. Her writing waned when adulthood struck, leading her back to Christchurch to start work. She quickly became absorbed in the computer industry, having been given a golden opportunity for on the job training with a local firm. At the age of twenty her career met a fork in the road and she became a solo mother, a move which quickly saw her on a fast track to becoming the independent woman she is now. Her husband Tony, whom she met at the age of twenty-four would argue this was not always a good thing! Together they have four children, one grandchild, two dogs, one cat and a healthy mortgage. An opportunity to attend a university course on creative writing was waved under her nose several years after they were married and she went on to attend the extended course also, giving her desire to write a much needed thrust back on track. Her first novel, Riding The Hurricane, was released in July 2008. She is an active member of, and an avid supporter of local short story competitions, although longer works have always been her passion.
