After a break for multiple reasons, the Power of Belief is back, and the multi-talented author and musician, Catherine Fearns, takes the theme in a new direction. Over to you, Catherine.

Miriam’s new blog series instantly leapt out at me, because ‘the power of belief’ is a major theme in my books. The characters are motivated by religious beliefs, and the readers are free to interpret my no

Another thrilling story by Jo Fenton, full of tension. It drew me in from the beginning and never let go until the end. I loved seeing Becky and Dan back thirty years after the events of Revelation, and catching up with their loves up to now. I was a ...more

I really enjoyed this novel. It's fast-paced, exciting and true-to-life. The characters are all well-formed and could easily be real. The twists at the end, on which I won't elaborate, took me by surprise, but were also perfectly plausible. Highly re ...more

The Girl Puzzle by Kate Braithwaite
You are like a lighthouse, Nellie Bly, shedding light and moving on. Useful in a crisis, with flashes of brilliance, yes, but remote.
A book group reader pointed to this as a key to Nellie's character. Is she right?

Maybe my favorite Nellie quote…

Franz Kafka
“I am a cage, in search of a bird.”
Franz Kafka

Jodi Picoult
“A child who suffers from PTSD has made unsuccessful attempts to get help, and as the victimization continues, he stops asking for it. He withdraws socially, because he’s never quite sure when interaction is going to lead to another incident of bullying….
Different people have different responses to stress. In Peter’s case, I saw an extreme emotional vulnerability, which, in fact, was the reason he was teased. Peter didn’t play by the codes of boys. He wasn’t a big athlete. He wasn’t tough. He was sensitive. And difference is not always respected – particularly when you’re a teenager. Adolescence is about fitting in, not standing out.”
Jodi Picoult, Nineteen Minutes

Etgar Keret
“Ehud was tall and strong and was always quiet. Lots of people thought that Ehud was quiet because he was stupid. That wasn’t true. He may not have been the smartest kid on the block, but he was no moron either.”
Etgar Keret, The Bus Driver Who Wanted to be God and Other Stories

Oscar Wilde
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

Barack Obama
“That's just how white folks will do you. It wasn't merely the cruelty involved; I was learning that black people could be mean and then some. It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter. It was as if whites didn't know they were being cruel in the first place. Or at least thought you deserved of their scorn.”
Barack Obama, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance
