I’ve been having a bit of a tough time recently, and have been struggling to enjoy my reading. And this wonderful series was everything I wanted it to be – it’s taken me a ridiculous length of time to read at a few chapters a night, but on those days when everything was just too much to cope with, I can’t begin to tell you the pleasure it gave me to escape to Snowdonia and Jack Redman’s complicated life.

Wow totally enjoyable

Now firstly apologies to anyone reading this I am unlike jan Ruth am not a great author, I could blame this on dyslexia or more likely complete lack of talent !

I don’t think I have a favourite character purely because there was something I liked in all of them Anna’s amazing ability to stay strong to herself ! Lottie for making me laugh so many time and I can so easily liken her to

Jan Ruth lives in Snowdonia, a mountainous area of North Wales, UK. Jan writes contemporary fiction about the darker side of the family dynamic, often blending life in rural Wales with a touch of city business. Her style is best described as fast-paced and realistic, with a sprinkling of dry humour.

The real story began at school, with prizes for short stories and poetry. She failed all things math
