I first became aware of Mary Metcalfe
when I read her novel "Winds of Change" and fell in love with her writing style...
I jumped at the chance to read "New Beginnings" and I'm happy to say I loved it
just as much! Perfect for a beach read or curled up in front of the fireplace
on a rainy day. (5 stars). Claire

Loved it! Can't wait for the next one! (5 stars). Stacy Decker; Goodreads, Librarything, Shelfari
I was already a huge fan of Mary Metcalfe, so I had
some admittedly high expectations upon starting "New Beginnings". True, it was
different than her other novel, but I think I liked it better! 5 stars and ready for the next one! April Dawn; Goodreads, Librarything,
"New Beginnings" is the first
book I've read by Mary Metcalfe, but I'm sure it won't be the last! (I've
already put "Winds of Change" and "Road to Tomorrow" on my TBR list).
I'll be reading her other books soon.

From the Author
I think we've all known someone who is driven in their career, sometimes at the expense of spending quality time with their families. Among the most driven, I've found, are real estate agents. They work nights and weekends - the very times their family members might be available for time together. When I wrote Carol Brock into my debut novel I didn't like her... but then I she told me her back story and that is how New Beginnings came about. Sure she has money, gobs of it. But her marriage came undone and her kids haven't been close to her in years. The central question for me was whether she realized the kind of life she'd built around her and whether she was ready to change. I'll leave it to you to find out for yourself. Happy reading!
