I wanted to write about pre-publication. That moment between complete belief that you have written a masterpiece, and utter dread that you're a self deceiving fool. This is what came out. With apologies to anyone who knows anything about poetry...

Was saving this book for after Christmas... but I couldn't resist! Waller has taken me out of my preferred genre and I loved it! Pace, setting, characters and plot are all dead on. Well done.

A really well thought out novel with real depth to the characters. Osborne knows her subject and it shows. Add a natural flair for writing and you have a novel that's a terrific read.

Karen Dear Owen

We recently became friends on Good Reads. I am writing to tell you there might be some confusion when I change my name from Mary to Karen Murphy.

When I joined Good Reads in 2014 I registered with my personal email address and password. My sister died suddenly in January, 2013. As a way of memorializing her, I made her name into my email address, So Good Reads assumed my name was Mary because that is the prefix of my email. My real name is Karen. I have been unable up to this point to fix my profile page to edit and save the changes. I now have step by step directions so I am going to try to change my name from my sister's name to my name Karen Murphy,

Sorry for any confusion this may cause you.

Your Good Reads Friend
Karen Murphy
