The moon is the metaphor of timeless knowledge, the overarching concept that is unifying and brings a degree of peace and connectedness to the story, holding the secrets of all time. It is the same moon that shone on our great great grandparents and the same moon that will be shining on our children's grandchildren some day.

It is interesting to see what has been written under Relationship Tales in Lovereading currently..
'No two relationships are the same, so is it any wonder that there is no shortage of great material in this section? We are big fans of relationship tales at Lovereading and we like to share the love. So, this section is where you’ll find all your favourite authors and, if you’ll let us be your relationship council, some brand new ones too.
Reading a book can be very much like a relationship. Sometimes you need warmth and wisdom (try Maeve Binchy, Cathy Kelly or Rosamunde Pilcher), sometimes you’re in a sexier mood (Jilly Cooper or Veronica Henry); sometimes you want to explore serious issues (Joanna Trollope or Libby Purves); there are times when you just want to throw your head back and have a good laugh (Maria Beaumont or Mavis Cheek) or for a bitter sweet tale then Bring down the Moon by Eva Le Bon shouldn't be missed.'
This weekend I have been reading Richard Madeley's 'Some day I'll find you',
I just loved it, the title drew me in from the start....what does it mean? affection or a threat?

Neither a Sebastien Faulks nor a Barbara Taylor Bradford but written in his own distinctive style, this novel is surely a BLOCK BUSTING FILM: the ultimate love story, a tale of contrasts: innocence, intrigue and deception.
Written with the urgency of a search and the pulsing beat of a heart that never gives up "Some day I'll find you" is an epic story of what people do for love.
No wonder it's flying off the shelves. Here is the link to my review, wonder if you too will hear Vera Lynn in the background!
What a victory. Thank you Gareth for laying your musical talent on the front line--for and with the invictus choir in order to produce something that will stand the test of time. The song-Flesh and Blood is so gutsy. We he ...Read More >>
We think this well written family saga, from a small independent publisher, is a compelling and addictive read.'
Love Reading View.
