And here they are, a box of books from the publisher, Piatkus. Always exciting to see them! I’ve been busy with the final copy edits on the next book, the last one in The Margate Maid trilogy, which is due out in January 2022. And I’ve been writing a new book – I’m 95,000 words in and nearing the end!
For now, though, the focus is on the paperback and sharing the second part of Molly’s story with as many people as possible. The early reviews have been lovely and very encouraging:
‘a very compelling story full of twists and turns . . . Held my interest to the very last page’
‘I read The Secret Child in two days, and while reading it I wanted to curl up in a sunny wild flower meadow and drink blackberry wine. That’s the sort of feeling it leaves you with.’
‘Loved reading this . . . It was a page turner that I finished in just a couple of days!’
‘Such a wonderful book, full of history, romance and the realities of life in the 1800s. . . . I’d highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an uplifting read.’
