Lovely Reviews

This weekend saw more lovely five star reviews for Storm Clouds Gathering and Sometimes It Happens... No matter whether it is the first review or the twentieth, I still have that wonderful warm feeling and still feel very honoured that people like my books.

Full of emotion and sensitivity - The first novel of Pauline Barclay's that I have read but I will certainly read others by the same author. The background of a mid 1960s mill town is well depicted and I recognised a number of 60s references, bringing back that era to my mind. The issues of loss, betrayal and bereavement were sensitively handled. I just wonder whether Pauline managed to write this novel without tears, as there were sections where I felt that I might not be able to read any more, the emotions of painful loss were so clearly depicted.

Lovely warm feeling - Read by me and my sister, takes the sting out of a wet English summer day with some welcome sunshine.
