Actress, Voice Over Artist and Audio Book Narrator/Producer

The couple that immediately spring to mind are Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler in Gone with the Wind.

Scarlett’s mischievous, outrageously wilful personality appeals because she is also vulnerable and uses her strength of character to help her through the tests she has to overcome.

Rhett’s ostentatious, devil-may-care attitude and cruelty is balanced by his charm and also the sensitivity he tries to hide from Scarlett.(less)

"Excellent Debut Novel

Although I thought this a little slow to start with, the tension builds into a taut thriller where you are never quite sure who is telling the truth.

With two strong female characters and a 3 dimensional supporting cast, once t..." Read more of this review »
