Book Description

Stella, working as a secretary in Paris, feels that her life is going nowhere. After the bitter break-up of a relationship, she has only a canary for company, and relations are strained with her parents and brother back in England. But when she meets her mysterious neighbour who lives across the street, unexpected and unnerving things start to happen. Why does Rose Martin have such a powerful effect on all around her? Faced with disturbing events and torn between divided loyalties, Stella must learn what she really wants to do.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has a touch of everything and is faultlessly written in a clear, pacy style that carries you along, breathless to find out what happens in the end. Stella, alone in her Paris flat, comes to know her neighbors slowly. One in particular, Rose, seems an unusual woman who attracts birds and will have no electrical plugs in her flat. But the more Stella gets to know Rose, the deeper the mystery becomes. Is Rose a witch? What powers does she hold? When Stella falls in love with their mutual friend, Olivier - darkly handsome and enigmatic - a curious triangle is weaved that one senses can only end in drama and shocking revelation. More than a mystery and more than romance, 'Candlepower' is a well-written social commentary at many levels: family relationships, the nature of friendship, loneliness, the paranormal, the hard-edge city effects on animals and wild things. One begins to see that everything we are and do, is connected in complex lines to others and to nature. This is a quietly brilliant book, delicate, emotive, powerful - highly recommended to those who enjoy originality and a good mystery.

More About the Author

I live in France, I love birds, I've been writing stories and poems since I was a child, and I also write songs in English and in French. People say I've acquired a French accent, but I don't believe it...

My novels contain a hint of the paranormal, which has always fascinated me and about which I prefer to keep an open mind. I wrote the children's stories to please myself, but I'm happy when children tell me that they like them.

You can see and hear me reading aloud from my books in the videos on the right. I welcome feedback. Please don't hesitate to write reviews!
