“I loved the mystery surrounding Zenna. It’s sort of creepy but in a good way. The writing style is lyrical, accessible, and totally gripping. Excellent novel.”
“You get to know Jo so well in this story. Loved all the suspense and trying to work out what was going on with Zenna. This is a story of lost memory, slow awakenings and, above all, suspense.”
“The writing style is easy to follow, the plot is complex – but not too complex. Possibly ‘clever’ is a better word to describe the plot! But it’s the protagonist who steals the show! I thought Jo was fascinating, her art, her memory loss, her way of looking for answers. All in all, a wonderful story I’d recommend to readers who enjoy smartly-plotted novels.”
“The story unravels in a smart, evenly paced way.”
Huge thank you to everyone who read my novel, and helped to organise the awards - they are a fantastic way to raise awareness of the brilliance of small and independently published books .

Review from Martha Engber, author of Winter Light:
Ethereal moments drift through this ghostly novella about a girl, then a woman, trying hard to escape a life-changing, almost life-ending, moment in her youth.
Quiet, chilling, this slender tale is absolutely thrilling!
