About the Author
Lucy Dunmore has been writing novels since she was 11 years old. She studied the History of Art at London University and has worked as a teacher, administrator and led art and music tours in Europe. Previously unpublished works include The Province of the Goddess which came fourth in a Victor Gollanz fantasy novel competition, and A Sense of Betrayal which was also warmly praised. A Poor Choice of Enemies, the sequel to Pictures of Angels, is presently being written in Spain.

There is a wonderful pace to the story, much like an old black and white movie, as well as romance, murder, insanity, evil people and magick gone wrong.
I loved ever bit of it and I hope that the author has a sequel in mind.
The Singing Stones
I enjoyed Alice's sassiness and her humanity - if you're a fan of Kerry Greenwood's Phryne Fisher detective stories you will enjoy the parallels, and the differences! (Phryne is most definitely a 20's woman) There is no doubt that Lucy Dunmore knows her Art and her Magic (I don't even know if I should really be using capital letters!) and the result is a peek into another world for me.
The cast of characters seems large, but delineated enough that you soon catch a sense of who's who. The 'chap of interest' (shan't tell - spoiler!) is marvellously dishy, and I do love the fact that Alice has her very own 'irregular' in the delightful chip eating, car loving George.
I hear that a sequel is in the offing and look forward to it!
