Editorial Reviews


Beautiful writing as always ... love the way Lindsay's experiences change her from an arrogant and aggressive teenager into a bruised but powerful woman. Chris Curran author of Her Deadly Secret.

Whatever the genre, Perrat skillfully weaves stories that capture us in the pages. Patricia Sands, author of the bestselling Love In Provence series.

Wonderfully descriptive - heat, beach, sea - really made me feel like I was there. Barbara Scott Emmett, author of The Land Beyond Goodbye.

A real page-turner ... love the 70s vibe ... Claire Whatley, reader and writer.

A gripping tale, read it in one go ... a touching portrait of a mother being kept from her newborn. Tricia Gilbey, reader and writer.
