Editorial Reviews

Review

"Powerful, poignant and ingenious."

"I know I'm in safe hands with an author who knows how to balance a story, create realistic worlds and dialogue and above all, keep the reader guessing. This does not disappoint on any level."

"An enthralling and satisfying read."

"A brilliant read from start to finish!"

"I have really enjoyed this author's other work, but this is a cracker. Highly recommended."

"Vivid descriptions, thoughtful characters and being based on real paces helped this story come alive... Katharine E. Smith who develops her writing with each book she produces."

From the Author

For a little taster of my writing, you can get a free short story - Passing Through - on my website, katharineesmith.com. I'm also very happy to hear from readers, and other writer, so please feel free to drop me a line.

I loved writing Amongst Friends as it was a hugely nostalgic experience, revisiting Bristol - a city where I spent many of my formative years. 

I also enjoyed the challenge of telling the story from the beginning back to the end, but this was more than a writing exercise. 

I often look at adults who have ended up in bad circumstances, or who have done terrible things, and try to make myself remember that they were once children. I wonder what has happened in their past to shape their present. 
In Amongst Friends, whilst I don't want sympathy for Lee - he is a grown man and makes his own decisions - I did want to explore what had happened during his life to make him the man he became. By tracing the story back to the beginning, I hope that this is something readers will consider as well.
