5 A Dark, Engrossing, Domestic Noir, That I couldn't put down!

Rosebrook Chronicles The Hidden Stories is a Dark, Emotive and Compelling Read that I couldn't put down, at times it was heart wrenching and dark, to read but so Engrossing.

This is a story of three very different young children, as the story progresses we learn about their lives and how their past, shapes their future.

It's a story that at times isn't an easy read and does contain sensitive subjects such as child abuse and violence but

This was such a powerful read – Helen Christmas has managed to navigate the complicated worlds of abuse, politics and religion expertly, weaving the stories of her three main characters seamlessly together. Though this book does take a look at the horrors of childhood abuse, it does not dwell on the act of abuse so much as it tackles the aftermath. It allows us to see how their past abuse has affected the characters in later life, and which decisions they subsequently make. Be that which lies to ...more

When siblings Peter and Bessie became orphans, they thought they would be looked after. Robin was an intelligent sensitive teenager who wanted to better himself.
As I am writing this review, this story is still affecting me. I love dark reads but I found parts of this book a difficult read and there were times I had to take a break. Saying that this heart-breaking subject matter was written sensitively and I knew that I wanted to finish this story as I wanted to know how their lives worked out.

Rosebrook Chronicleswas a challenging read for me. The subject matter was heart-breaking, and the writing was so well done that there were parts I needed to take a break from. That being said, this book is absolutely incredible. Helen J. Christmas handles this book with care, and draws you in. Though I took breaks, I always came back, needing to know what happened to these people.

I’m having trouble writing this review, because the stories are still on my mind. I loved the way each child was

I loved this prequel to the ‘Same Face Different Place’ series, which gives us the back stories of some of the characters. With a sure-footed sense of time and place, the author takes us on an exhilarating journey, examining some challenging moral issues along the way. Her sensitive handling of the long-term effects of childhood abuse is particularly impressive, and she never fails to tap into the depths of her characters’ emotions. The way all the stories weave together was also very ...more

A fantastic book by Helen J Christmas, great storytelling and the chain of events that develops is all linked to Helen's superb series Same Face Different Place. It really is talented writing and I would recommend her books every time. Strong characters and very believable, in fact you get so immersed in each story line you just don't want it to finish. This lady has a gift for writing and I cannot wait for her next book. A Must Read in my opinion . Well done Helen 5 stars!

Powerful sagas with great characters are the stories I most love to write and my own series 'Same Face Different Place' promises to be a real page turner. Set around the counties of London and Kent, in England, the story takes place across 4 decades.

The first book, titled Beginnings is a fast paced thriller set in the dark criminal underworld of 1970s London, of 2 young people caught up in a
