I don’t remember seeing this before Tanya – thank you so much 🙂
From the start readers will recognise this author has an excellent command of words. The way the scenes, emotions, tensions, etc. are conveyed draws the reader in enabling them to easily visualise the situations, disappointments, apprehensions and fears the protagonist, Amie, encounters and experiences. Occasionally it may appear the author is going to go into too much detail however, she never does. The information provided enables the reader to fully comprehend what is happening without every minute and unnecessary aspect or detail being drawn out. The reader is never left wondering. The words more than paint a picture.
It is sometimes possible to mistake this for a memoir, which it is not. For example, the disappointment felt on a family visit is heartfelt and realistically imparted. The author is evidently an acute observer of people and life. It is also clear she has drawn upon her own experiences.
