Free books!! Roll up… Roll up!

As you saw when you landed, I’m offering all visitors to my website a free book to download to your device absolutely gratis and for nothing. It’s a novella so it’s a quick read but it was inspired by a story I heard of a woman who married a man who didn’t love her and who really only wanted a housekeeper. I tried to imagine what would make someone do that, to knowingly enter into a marriage of convenience in this day and age when the world holds so many more possibilities than it did in the past, especially for poor women, and the story Letters of Freedom is what I came up with. It is, like all my stories, firmly rooted in Ireland, but I hope the themes that I explore in my books are universal.

Throughout our lives we face what Frost beautifully describes as ‘two roads diverged’ and we have to decide what path to take and it can, as the poet says ‘make all the difference’. For Carmel, the central character, she is faced with a dilemma and her decisions do make all the difference. It’s a book for anyone who wants to curl up on a couch in front of a fire (if you’re from my neck of the woods) or stretch out on a lounger in the sun (if you’re from somewhere else) and lose yourself in a story. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it

As always, if you get a moment, and you have the inclination to leave a review then that would be lovely and I really would appreciate it.

Bye for a while,

  1. Hello Jean I have just “found” you and am about to start Shadow of a Century which just looks my cup of tea, and I would love to receive the novella.

    Thank you.

  2. I absolutely loved reading Shadows of the Centuries. Why it hasn’t been made into a movie yet is beyond me. What a touching story for anyone to read. Definitely a FIVE STAR Rating in my eyes. Wish the book wouldn’t have ended……..

    1. Hi Cynthia,
      Thanks for contacting me, its so nice to hear from readers. Makes it feel less of a solitary activity!

  3. Dear Ms. Grainger,
    Just wanted to tell you how much I love your stories. I have read them all in rapid succession, ever since, a few months ago, I took a chance on Shadow of a Century on Kindle, which was one of my free daily offerings on Bookbub. It caught my eye as my husband and I are getting ready for our first trip to Ireland on May 20th! I love to read about a new destination before I go, and had just completed (listening to on Audible) Edward Rutherfurd’s saga: The Princes of Ireland and The Rebels of Ireland. Your storytelling sucked me right in, and I found each novel and short story to be so enjoyable and satisfying from beginning to end. I am greatly looking forward to your next book(s)! Thank you and kind regards, Susan

    1. Hi Susan,
      thanks for that, its lovely to hear from readers, it really cheers me up. The best of luck to you on your travels in Ireland and I hope you have a wonderful time. Dont forget a raincoat, and snow goggles and a bikini, and an ice pick…we get all sorts of weather here!
      Jean xx
