'Suspected Arson Attack' At Islamic School So co-incidentally ran the headline on the news website open on my PC as I began to write this review. Just one more example of many similar acts that I am sure we all know about, happening all around the world. Prejudice exists in many forms, and leads many people to act in these unfortunate ways. Whilst some “organise” themselves into groups to undertake planned actions like this arson attack; others perhaps do not realise just how much prejudice is i ...more

CITY OF SORROWS is a daring novel that will surely attract attention for its up-close look into the enigmatic world of the Spanish Gypsy. I was drawn to this title because I read that the author had spent time living with a group of Gypsies in Seville. That fact gives credibility to the book. It was intriguing to learn more about the Spanish Gypsy culture, but the story is a lot more than just Gypsies. It's a powerful story about three men, from three different worlds, who are thrown together by ...more

I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked the way each chapter was entitled with the name of one of the three characters. It is so annoying and confusing in some novels when there is a sudden switch to another character mid chapter. Well done Susan!
The novel starts in India and then continues in Seville, Spain where the three main characters cross paths. A tragedy occurs and you feel the anguish, sorrow and need for revenge and subsequent misdeeds. This book is a page turner as you wait to rea

Wendy Salmon A beautifully written and heartbreaking story about 3 men from different walks of life thrown together by circumstance. I loved the writers voice and felt drawn into the character's lives from the very first page. Easy to follow, lovely style.

I love books. Diaries and journals. There's no question about it, I'm a reader and a writer.

In fact, I think I was set up to become a writer. Probably my mother's fault. Those knee-length dresses she forced me into when all the other kids were wearing mini skirts didn't help my position as the official bully target. Maybe you can relate. The nerdy bookworm, glasses since the sixth grade, fashion-c
