APRIL SHOWERS PRAISE ON FIELDS OF GRACE
What an extraordinary month April has been for me and more specifically for my book, Fields of Grace.
Fields of Grace was turned down by every publisher and agent I submitted it to over a period of ten years between 2010 and 2020 and now it has been voted best book of April by two independent reviewers.
The first acknowledgement came from London reviewer Rose Auburn who voted Fields of Grace one of two best reads in April.

Q1. What was your favourite and least favourite book of 2020?
Gaarrrrghh! Pulling out the biggest question first! I’ve read so many brilliant books this year (which is why it’s taking me a long time to pull together my ‘5* reads of 2020’ blog article). But I clearly have to give an answer so my favourite would be …
It is very emotionally involving, with a cast of characters so vivid and alive they felt like good friends within the first few chapters. I adore Wendy’s lyrical style of writing; she’s a musician and this delightful talent flows lusciously into her prose. If you’ve not read this book, I hugely recommend it … you’re in for a treat.

I am so grateful to Rose, Sarah and Peter for giving this story wings.
Thank you to my friend Dean Micheal Rochford for an achingly beautiful cover. RIP my friend, gone but not forgotten.
