Hi Rhonda.
Such lovely words! Thank you. I’m so glad you loved both books. In The Road Beyond Ruin, the back and forth in time was a detour from my usual style but I wanted to offer something different. Needless to say the experience made my own head spin at times. I’m in the middle of the developmental phase for a new historical fiction novel being released in January next year, in a similar writing style to Broken Angels but with a different setting.
Kind regards, Gemma(less)

“As long as there is a sun and a moon, there is another day to love and fight.”
Gemma Liviero, Pastel Orphans

“Each time my mother sank to the bottom of cold despair, she would always find a break in the ice above, to breathe new air, to find new purpose. She never indulged in self-pity, nor did she point the finger of blame for her misfortunes. Her heart was clear of bitterness. I believe that if a person’s strength of character is measured at the end of his or her life, it is by these qualities—qualities that allow a life to be lived, free of those restraints we place upon ourselves. But that doesn’t mean we should forget.”
Gemma Liviero, Broken Angels

Gemma Liviero, Pastel Orphans

“...I feel pity that she will never fully understand what it is to be loved and forgiven, then loved even more.” Pastel Orphans”
Gemma Liviero, Pastel Orphans

“Late afternoon, a package arrives addressed to me. Inside is a picture book and the title is Hansel and Gretel. It is the most beautiful book. It has a golden spine and the pictures are shining with color.
I read the whole book over and over again and then I read it to Greta, who clings to me afterwards.
“It is all right,” I say to her. “It is just a story. Things like that don’t really happen.”
