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,
