Yes in fact it was quite difficult to find (solid) medical information about herbs and plants used during childbirth mainly because most people couldn't read or write back then. So not many records were kept, especially concerning childbirth, from which men (the main writers) were banned. However, I did come across a few texts which were helpful, such as The Trotula and Nicholas Culpeper's "Complete Herbal". Also, the medicinal herbs and plants haven't really changed that much from ancient times, even to our modern times. Midwives were sometimes viewed as witches, but the real witch hunts didn't come until after the time period of my book. However, they were also revered... looked upon with a mixture of fear, suspicion and respect. I hope that's answered your question and thanks for your interest! Cheers, Liza.

The Blackbird has Flown!

Well, after an exceptionally long writing period, I'm pleased to finally announce the publication of The Lost Blackbird.

During the latter half of the 20th century, many British parents who were struggling financially, were offered the chance of a better life for their children by sending them to populate the colonies. Some parents, however, were not even asked permission, their children being ship

Spirit of Lost Angels (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: Her mother executed for witchcraft, her father dead at the hand of a noble, Victoire Charpentier vows to rise above her impoverished peasant roots. Forced to leave her village of Lucie-sur-Vionne for domestic work in the capital, Victoire suffers gruesome abuse under the ancien régime of 18th century Paris. Imprisoned in France’s most pitiless madhouse – La Salpêtrière asylum – Victoire becomes desperate and helpless, until she meets fellow prisoner Jeanne de Valois, infamous conwoman of the diamond necklace affair. With the help of the ruthless and charismatic countess who helped hasten Queen Marie Antoinette to the guillotine, Victoire carves out a new life for herself. Enmeshed in the fever of pre-revolutionary Paris, Victoire must find the strength to join the revolutionary force storming the Bastille. Is she brave enough to help overthrow the diabolical aristocracy? As Spirit of Lost Angels traces Victoire’s journey, it follows too, the journey of an angel talisman through generations of the Charpentier family. Victoire lives in the hope her angel pendant will one day renew the link with a special person in her life. Amidst the tumult of the French revolution drama, the women of Spirit of Lost Angels face tragedy and betrayal in a world where their gift can be their curse.

Another wonderful, heart-wrenching story from Clare Flynn. As I've loved to "travel" to far off, exotic locations in the author's other novels, I thoroughly enjoyed both the UK setting and the Borneo jungle for this one. Highly entertaining!

You are very welcome, Sharon! Thanks for accepting. I was born in Tasmania too! But in Burnie, and 10 years before you. We didn't stay long though, and moved up and down the east coast most of my childhood. I've now been living in France for 20 years and really miss my beloved Oz! I see you write a lovely book review blog... if at some time you'd like to review any of my books, I'd appreciate it, and happy to send whatever format you prefer. Basically, it's a France-based historical trilogy, but the books can all be read as standalones, and in any order. They all deal with the same family, farmhouse and village, but over wide generations and against the backdrops of the the Black Plague, the French Revolution, and the WW2 Nazi occupation of the village. Please let me know if you are interested. Looking forward to chatting about books with you here on GR! Cheers, Liza
