If you have a taste for a story about a time many of us can remember, though it is likely past for good, this novel of how three siblings deal with facing a future changed by "progress" and loss for each of them, you might enjoy meeting the Adams family.
When you love your story as it unfolds under your fingers, completing it feels like a mixed blessing. When you then wonder whether it will ever see the light of day, you can begin to regard it as a curse. Nobody who writes for publication will fail to understand what I mean. During this waiting time, you become convinced that the book is too poor for anyone to want to read it anyway. I hope this feeling will pass soon!
I'm happy to wish myself a happy holiday now, while I also wish for happy readers.
Amazon and the publisher Cambridge Books are the primary sources, but most booksellers will order.
Now I can proceed to the last of the Christmas cards and packing for the journey north to spend Christmas with my children.
